Examination for Acceleration

Examination for Acceleration allows students, who without direct instruction have already mastered all content and skills in a particular grade level or course, to advance to the next level or course. These exams are available at no cost to eligible students who test during the district’s testing periods.

Students are expected to complete each exam they have registered for, therefore we ask you to be available during the testing window you have selected. Once the final schedule has been set, a letter will be mailed home approximately 1 week prior to the testing date for each testing period. Note: The District does not receive reimbursement for tests not taken.

Tests will not be offered for the EOC tested courses: English I, Algebra 1, Biology, English II, US History


2017-18 Test dates will be posted once provided by the District.


For all of the Examinations for Acceleration, the district uses tests developed by the University of Texas at Austin UT High School. For Grades 1-12, UT provides review sheets in a free online printable format, available even before students are enrolled. Information can be found online at https://highschool.utexas.edu/credit_by_exam.php


Students should contact their campus counselors for registration and additional information.
