Applicants entering 1st through 9th grade will be required to take an admissions examination before admittance is complete. After the approved submission of the required registration forms and documents as well as the required $25 testing fee, a date and time will be arranged for the student to come in for approximately two and a half to three hours of testing. Peace Academy utilizes the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) for admissions and through the regular school year as a professional academic assessment of students’ abilities. Admissions testing generally focuses on reading and mathematics skills at the most recently completed grade level of the student, though additional testing may be required. If the child’s previous school likewise utilized the ITBS as an end-of-year assessment, admissions testing may be skipped if the results of that examination are made available.
