Standardized Testing

Beginning in March of 2018 The Academy of Our Lady of Peace, as part of the Archdiocese of Newark, will take part in the Iowa national standardized assessment program. This battery of tests is given to students in both public and private schools across the country.

The information that is learned from this assessment not only helps us to understand student progress, it also helps us to continually fine tune our academic curriculum.

The students of The Academy of Our Lady of Peace consistently score well above the National average (50th Percentile) in all subjects for all grades tested. We also consistently score at the top of the Newark Archdiocese (comprised of 70 schools in Bergen, Essex, Hudson and Union counties.)
