Please click here or the image above to access the form needed to take an Algebra placement test. the score on this test will help Maine South determine a proper math placement for a student's first year of high school. This form is due back to St. Paul of the Cross by Friday, January 27, 2017.




This is to inform you that the eighth grade will not be taking a second MAP test this year.  After speaking with Maine South, it has come to our attention that they only use the fall test results for freshman year placements.  The students will still be taking the Aspire interims throughout the year as well as the Aspire summative in April.
