Elementary Schools

In the spring of 2019, elementary schools across the Archdiocese of Chicago administered the ACT Aspire summative test to students in grades 3-8. The ACT Aspire test assesses students’ academic proficiency in five academic areas: English, Reading, Math and Science. The test is aligned with the rigorous curriculum standards that inform classroom instruction in all classrooms across the archdiocese. The ACT Aspire test evaluates student understanding of concepts and asks students to demonstrate their proficiency with grade-level skills.
