What about the COOP Exam?
The Cooperative Admissions Examination is an assessment strategy designed to enable
the student's high school admissions program of choice to measure the growth and
achievement of the student, to date, and develop an accurate understanding of the
student's growth over time. The fee of the examination is a non-refundable $60.00.
The purpose of the examination is to provide objective information about eighth grade
students applying to the Catholic High School admissions program of their choice. The
examination measures academic achievement in reading, language, and mathematics and
contains additional material to assess academic aptitude and memory. Catholic High
Schools also utilize effort and performance ratings from grades 6, 7, and 8, as well as
previous standardized test results.
A Student Handbook providing a full description of the examination and instructions for
filling out the application form and a Sample Test booklet will be available to each
applicant.
The Ninth Grade Applicant Record form can be downloaded from www.coopexam.org
