ACADEMICS INFORMATION

CAASPP TESTING SPRING 2021

This year, Juniors and Seniors will participate in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). Students in 11th grade will take the English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics Assessments, while students in grades 11 and 12 will take the California Science Test (CAST). Sophomores and Freshmen will not participate in any state test-taking activities this year. On testing days, the only students on campus in the A/morning cohort will be the assigned test takers in 11th (ELA, Math, Science) and 12th grade (Science only). Students will test on campus if they are in person learners. Students will test at home if they are virtual learners. The test will be administered in a Hyflex format in the current 5th and 6th periods.

FEATURED COLLEGE

Royal aims to provide insight into unique college options for students & families. Our source is the Fiske Guide to Colleges 2020 - an annual comprehensive catalog of diverse universities here in California and nationwide.


Centre College

Click here for Admissions Info

Click here for Tuition & Financial Aid Info

Enrollment: 1,440

Acceptance Rate: 76%


DETAILS: Centre College, the only independent school in Kentucky with a Phi Beta Kappa chapter, has produced two-thirds of the state’s Rhodes scholars over the last 40 years. Centre’s small size offers an intimate classroom environment. And its liberal arts focus means that despite Centre’s southern location, students are progressive, intellectual, and perhaps more well-rounded than their peers at neighboring schools. “We have an amazing balance of ‘Northern academics’ paired with ‘Southern hospitalities,’” says a sophomore.


General education requirements include basic skills in expository writing, math, and foreign language and two courses in four contexts—aesthetic, social, scientific, and fundamental questions. Students must also take a computer seminar. Required first-year seminar courses are offered during the three-week January “CentreTerm.” Capped at 15 students each, they offer a chance to explore off-beat topics such as cloning, baseball in American politics, and coffee-shop culture.


The Centre Commitment guarantees students an internship or research experience, study abroad, and a degree in four years. Eighty-five percent of any given class takes advantage of Centre’s extensive study abroad programs. Centre runs regular semester-long programs for students in all majors in China, England, France, Japan, Mexico, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Spain, in addition to several others offered during the January term. Study-away semesters in Washington, D.C., and Chicago combine coursework with internships. Approximately 82 percent of students engage in an internship or perform collaborative research with faculty.

CC Student Perspective: “Our small class sizes allow professors to really feed off of the energy and needs of the class and make it a more personal environment.”
