    • Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) is administered to all sophomores in March. Passing the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) is mandatory for graduation. The OGT consists of five separate tests in reading, math, writing, science, and social studies. To pass the OGT, students must attain a score of at least 400 or a rating of “proficient”. The possible ratings are Advanced, Accelerated, Proficient, Limited, and Basic. If the first attempt to pass is unsuccessful, students may retake individual subject tests in July and October. Students must continue taking the subjects they did not pass until a rating of proficient, accelerated, or advanced is reached. If one or more subject is not passed, the student may not graduate.
    • Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is administered to all juniors and sophomores in October. Doing well on the PSAT may result in the student being named a National Merit Scholar and earning scholarships.
    • PLAN Test administered to all sophomores in the fall.
