Canadian Cognitive Abilities Test (CCAT) for All Grade 4 Students

In October, all grade 4 students in our Board will write the Canadian Cognitive Abilities Test (CCAT) to determine eligibility for the P.A.C.E. (Program for Academic and Creative Extension), or Gifted Program. At  St. Mark, students selected for PACE attend St. Justin Martyr in Grade 5 for this program.

Results will be available later this year, and parents of students who may be suitable candidates for this program will be notified.  The results of these tests also provide the school with information about all children’s areas of strength and weakness.

Students cannot study for this test, but regular bedtime and a healthy diet are always encouraged!
