Testing

Testing for admission to Prince of Peace Catholic School will be scheduled individually as Admissions Applications are received. Students entering K4 are not tested. Students entering 3rd to 8th grades take a written test with content taken from Prince of Peace classes of your child’s current grade level. Students entering into Kindergarten to 2nd grades will take the computer-based Children’s Progress Academic Assessment (CPAA) which measures your child’s academic ability in math and language arts on the basis of current research on early childhood learning goals.

Non-parishioners: If you are a parishioner at another Greenville parish, please consult your pastor about tuition assistance.  Pastors of local Greenville parishes without a Catholic parochial school (such as St. Mary Magdalene parish or St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parish) are committed to supporting families who want a Catholic education for their children.  These churches might also ask you to submit a FACTS application for financial assistance.

Families of Children with Special Needs:  Regardless of where you are an active parishioner, If your child has a professionally diagnosed and documented learning difference, you might be eligible to apply for a tuition grant through the Exceptional-SC Scholarship Program.

Or you might be eligible to submit documentation to the SC Department of Revenue for a state tax credit for your child’s tuition. To read more about how the grant program works, go to the Educational Credit for Exceptional Needs Children (ECENC) website.
