Placement Tests

Ninth grade student course placement for Math and English is determined by LCCS Department Chairs. Middle school faculty provides recommendations based on academic progress and standardized test results.


Parents of students from other schools: When registering, please bring copies of middle school report cards and standardized test results to facilitate course placement.


All incoming Lumen Christi ninth graders take the Nelson-Denny reading test. If results indicate that a student will be better served in a different class, necessary schedule adjustments will be made.


Students entering Lumen Christi from non-Catholic schools will be given a math placement test. Subsequently, schedule changes will be made if necessary.
