Required Tests for New Students Entering Grades 4 through 9

Students entering grades 5 or 9 from home schooling or a nonpublic school in Louisiana must take and pass the LEAP test. If your child has not taken the LEAP test, he/she will have to take and pass the LEAP placement test before he/she can enroll in 5th or 9th grades.

Students entering grades 4, 6, 7, or 8 from home schooling or a nonapproved Louisiana nonpublic school must take and pass a placement test before enrolling in these grade levels.

Students entering grades 4 through 9 from an approved Louisiana nonpublic school or an out of state/country school do not need to take a placement test before enrolling in these grade levels. Students will be placed according to the grade level attained from the out of state/country system.

If your child must take a test in order to be placed into a school, you will be contacted by the Testing Department with the testing time and location after you register your child.
