Altered Schedule for keystone testing

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, Keystone exams that were planned for this past May will take place from October 5th through October 9th.

The PA Department of Education requires that all students in Algebra 1, English II, and Biology take the Keystone Exam upon course completion.  The Keystone exams are used as one of the options to meet graduation requirements for the Class of 2022 and beyond.  Per PDE, students who were taking one of the above classes in the Spring of 2020 are to be offered the option of taking the Keystone exams during the testing window below.

Please note, that if a child is opted out of these exams, he/she would still need to meet one of the alternate pathways to meeting graduation requirements.

Keystone Preparation Help

Due to the pandemic, the English 10, Algebra 1, and Biology Keystone exams that were scheduled to take place in May of our last school year will now take place in October.  Because a significant amount of time has passed since students took these Keystone classes, all students should refresh their skills before taking the tests in October.

Please access the following documents in preparation to take your Keystones.
