Academic Testing for Renaissance


    This testing is for students applying for the Renaissance program who do not have academic data required for the application. (Tests that show current math and reading abilities/levels.) Students will take an SRI reading test to determine their reading/Lexile level and two short district math assessments. Students cannot do both the Academic and gifted testing on this date due to the length of the testing sessions. It is recommended that students test for gifted identification first, they then can come for academic testing if needed. Academic testing takes place at Barry Goldwater High School and the fees and dates are below.


    • This is only if your current school cannot or will not provide academic data on your child's reading and math abilities. (All Deer Valley USD schools will.)
    • In most cases, this assessment is not necessary. If you are signing up for this option, please email to make sure we cannot help you find any other data for the application.
    • Please make sure your child has qualifying gifted scores before signing up for academic testing
