The Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth presented a certificate of recognition to St. John’s Academy for our support of students with high academic potential in the 2006 Talen Search: in the Seventh and Eight Grades — Mathematics and Verbal Talent Search.
We are extremely proud of our results from last spring’s Stanford 10 testing. On the average, our students tested at least two grade levels above the norm. Here are some examples of the more outstanding results: A third grader tested at a POST HIGH SCHOOL level in word study skills– and averaged in all other tests at the 6th grade level. Another third grader had 11th grade word study skills, and 9th grade level reading vocabulary and reading comprehension, thereby qualifying to enter the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth Search. A fourth grader tested at a post high school level on language expression and tenth grade on language. Another fourth grader tested at the tenth grade level on reading vocabulary. Two fifth graders tested post high school on various tests, one qualifying for the Johns Hopkins program also. The sixth and seventh graders scored post high school, 12th and 11th grade levels on the average.
