Eligibility Testing


ISD 199 offers appointments on select dates for out-of-district families to complete the assessments for Atheneum eligibility testing.  

Three assessments are required for Atheneum's evaluation process.  However, students are only allowed to take the next test if they meet the required criteria of scoring above the 90th percentile.  Appointments for each assessment last approximately 2 hours and take place at the ISD 199 District Office, 2990 80th Street East, Inver Grove Heights, MN 55076.  Based on students' results, the other assessments in the process will be scheduled separately.

All assessments must be administered during the current school year and submitted by the application deadline to be considered for potential placement.  If your child has taken one or more of the assessments at their current school, you may submit a score report and do NOT need to schedule a testing appointment. 
Official score reports can be submitted via email or regular mail to:

Assessment fees for out-of-district families are:  $25 each for the first two assessments, and $150 for the final (third) assessment.  Only cash and checks payable to ISD 199 are accepted and are due at the testing appointment.  Receipts are available upon request.
