Welcome to the Testing Information Website!
Testing can be complicated and confusing for everyone, so we hope that the information below will help guide you through the process. The testing and counselors office review all students testing requirements on a regular basis and make sure that students are aware of their standings.
Please be mindful that test scores for graduation requirements are based off when the student first took the test and that testing requirements change as the state of Maryland and our county updates policies and requirements.
