- The best way to understand why Queen of Peace Catholic Academy is an academically successful prep school for students of all types of learning styles is to see our students in the classroom and meet our teachers. Our curriculum is a dynamic, hands on program that promotes personal character and a united love of learning. We encourage visits from prospective students and their families. Visits are designed for you to learn more about the Academy in order to provide you with the opportunity to assess the benefits of our school as they pertain to your child`s academic and personal needs. We are currently accepting new students.
- Standardized Testing-Why do we take the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) instead of the FSA/EOC. The FSA/EOC is designed only to assess how students are meeting the Florida Sunshine State standards. There are no national comparisons, no connection to cognitive abilities, and high stakes are based solely on accountability. The ITBS is a norm-referenced test based on the National Standards. Score norms are based on all students in the country who took the same test in the same grade. The ITBS provides feedback on how effectively our teaching methods are preparing your children for high school on a national level. The ITBS test is research based and built on 80 years of study.
