CSS graduates are prepared to succeed in college and in life. While our teachers do not “teach to the test,” we do administer the ACT Aspire for grades 3-12, in addition to the PSAT, ACT, and SAT for our Upper School students. Students perform very well on their college admission tests and 100% matriculate to colleges throughout the nation and around the world.
