Test Scores

CSS graduates are prepared to succeed in college and in life. While our teachers do not “teach to the test,” we do administer benchmark testing to track academic progression from grades 3-12, in addition to the PSAT, ACT, and SAT for our Upper School students.

Students perform very well on their college admission tests and 100% matriculate to post-secondary education institutions across the nation and around the world. The CSS Class of 2022 earned $5.5M in merit scholarships and awards for college.
