Terra Nova Testing

Did you know that the Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Louisville consistently score 15% higher on Terra Nova tests than the national average?

What if we told you we have taken a good thing and made it better?

Holy Spirit School has administered the Terra Nova 3rd Edition to students in grades 3 – 7. The Archdiocese of Louisville has required schools to test grades 3, 5, and 7.

MEAN NORMAL CURVE EQUIVALENTS (MNCE): (This is the scale used for all scores shown below.)

MNCE’s are based on a bell curve and allow comparisons: subject to subject, grade level to grade level. They are ordinarily lower than percentiles. Each year the Archdiocese shares the MNCE for all schools. Below is a comparison of MNCE scores obtained by Holy Spirit and the MNCE of the Archdiocese.

Holy Spirit School has been recognized for The Blue Ribbon of Excellence award in 2007 and 2014.

Holy Spirit School follows the Archdiocesan Curriculum Framework and has continually met the criteria that recognizes top performing schools in the country.
