Standardized Testing

In March of 2018 and 2019 The Academy of Our Lady of Peace took part in the Iowa national standardized assessment program as mandated by the Archdiocese of Newark. This battery of tests is given to students in both public and private schools across the country.

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

Starting in the 2019-20 school year, The Academy is transitioning to the NWEA – MAP Growth standardized assessment program administered to our grade 2 to 8 students three times within an academic year.  This online secure testing system not only measures what a student knows but also what they are able to learn next. The timely reports provide quick feedback to help our teachers and their students.
