Testing Out

Per Michigan law, a student may attempt to test out of high school classes required for graduation.  The intent of this law is to allow students who have extensive prior knowledge in a subject the opportunity to test out and move on to higher level classes in that subject area.  Students interested in testing out must complete and submit this registration form by Friday, March 19.  Please read through the form for more specific details regarding the test out process.
