Course Placement Test

Course Placement

Cardinal Gibbons uses guidelines from academic departments to place students in courses for the upcoming school year.

Placements are determined by:

  • Current Course
  • Semester 1 grades
  • PSAT scores

Students seeking a change in placement must take a Course Placement Test. Results will be available within 48 hours of the placement test. Passing scores will change access to placement options in PowerSchool.
