WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
The NeoCity Academy Skills Inventory is a 60-minute assessment that assesses prospective students' reading, writing, and mathematics skills. Questions include multiple choice questions as well as open-ended response questions. This exam will be given on a computer; please bring your District issued laptop for the exam. If you do not have a laptop, we will provide one. Students who have a current 504 or IEP with test accommodations should contact our Admissions team at email@example.com.
The Collaborative Team Activity is an opportunity for prospective students to participate in an activity that replicates common approaches to learning at NeoCity. This not only allows us to get to know your student, but for your student to see out inquiry-based approach. These sessions are 60-minutes and will be held in small groups.
Both activities are held on the same night. An email is sent to schedule once your Choice application is received.
