On Saturday, March 23, Marist High School will administer a qualification exam to current seventh graders who are interested in participating in the school's Marist Math program as eighth graders.
Students testing for acceptance into the Marist Math program should exhibit innate and exemplary math abilities. It is our hope that students who participate in the program will qualify for an honors math placement as high school freshmen culminating with successful completion of AP Calculus as high school seniors.
