Trent offers an optional placement exam for incoming students to make sure they are placed in the correct grade level. The placement exam is completely optional and is intended for students who have not attended a public or private school, have been home-schooled, or have not attended any school within the past year.

The placement exam is taken online and submitted electronically. Once we've received payment, we will grade the exam and send you the results promptly. A $25.00 fee must accompany the completed exam, which can be paid by debit/credit card through PayPal, check or money order.
