Our mission is to accurately and supportively assess the skill levels of incoming students, GED candidates, special needs students and other testers by providing a calm and inviting atmosphere in which students can relax and focus on their tests with minimal stress and distractions. We strive not only to provide the best possible testing environment but also to advise students about their test results with the utmost tact and compassion. The Testing Center must exude an atmosphere of comfort and provide students who do not attain their desired scores the means to improve their scores by referring them to tutors, labs and study materials.
