I am trying to get my son into a Catholic school here and part of the application process is to have him tested to see if he meets their entrance requirements. I am a little worried, not that he won't pass really, but more about what to tell him when I take him that he will be taking a test...
I guess I also don't know what else they might ask him during the process and don't want him caught off guard if they ask anything about coming to a new school, etc. I don't want to tell him we are looking at a new school just in case he doesn't get in... Anyone ever go through this before? We are trying to get in for first grade this fall.

Catholic School? You are pretty much guaranteed to get in since they NEED your money these days. Enrollment is way down in Catholic Schools simply for the mere fact that many of their students have left because families can no longer pay to send their child. Tell your Son that we are going to see if "we" like it there NOT if "they" will accept you.

Tell him it's an assessment of what he knows... not a test. That way if he doesn't get in he won't feel like he failed!!
