Saturday, February 3, 2018 English Placement Test Administration

Yes, it’s that time of year: Virginia Placement Testing or VPT.

The English placement test will be administered on Saturday, February 3rd at 9 A.M. at the Reynolds Parham Road Campus. Students should arrive to the Welcome Center no earlier than 8:45 a.m.  The Welcome Center is located between Georgiadis Hall and Burnette Hall. We request 100% attendance for this testing date.

Testing consists of a writing and multiple choice portion and takes, on average, three hours to complete. Student testing is untimed. There is no testing fee and you do not need to bring a photo ID.

Parents should report to the auditorium in the Massey Library Technology Center at 9 A.M. for a 10th Grade parent workshop. The parent workshop will conclude at approximately 12 P.M.
