Online Diagnostic Test

As parents, what we want most is that our children  have as many opportunities for success as possible. After disruptions in our children’s education over the past two years, studies have shown that the average student has lost one year of subject knowledge. It is essential that we give our students the help they need to recover. Their future successes depend on it! Many of our parents have come to us wondering if their students are at the appropriate grade level in their education. Through the diagnostic tests we have administered for elementary school students, the answer is often no. Our school systems are under so much pressure from all the obstacles presented over the past two years and cannot help our students individually. That is why ASC is offering a free online English (ELA) and Math diagnostic test for your child so that we know their current level and areas of improvement. From there, we can offer academic support, including private tutoring services, to help your child catch up and excel outside of ASC.

Testimonials

"I was enrolled in another program in which there were only children who were very advanced. The instructors did not know how to teach students who were performing at their regular grade level, and it was a waste of time. The teachers at ASC are always very prepared, they explain things clearly, and the homework aligns with the lessons."
