Parents

We have a unique day for testing some of our students. Please see the schedule below for your student and how they are impacted -

GRADES 7-9: Students will have asynchronous learning at home. Teachers will post assignments on the Google class page for students to complete.

GRADES 10-11: PSAT testing. Most students will finish at approximately noon and will be dismissed from school once testing is complete. Students with accommodations will finish at around 1:30pm and will then be dismissed.

GRADE 12: SAT testing for those who signed up. Most students will finish at approximately noon and will be dismissed from school once testing is complete. Students with accommodations will finish at around 1:30pm and will then be dismissed. Please contact the Guidance Office if you want to confirm testing for your student. If a student did not sign up for SAT testing, they will be able to use it as a college visit day.

SUMMER FIELD STUDIES

Summer Field Studies is a unique experience offered between Cardinal Ritter, Roncalli, and Bishop Chatard High Schools. The program is one part adventure, one part education, and one part retreat. Students hike, climb, camp, cook, swim, raft, backpack, play, and pray in a uniquely challenging way that teaches students to respect themselves, to become leaders, and to work to achieve their goals. Interested students and parents are invited to learn more about this experience at a meeting held on October 20th at 7pm in the Guadalupe Room. Please contact Mr. Allard at lallard@cardinalritter.org with any questions.

Free Online Tutoring Available for Indiana Students 
Indiana Department of Education Launches Partnership with Schoolhouse.world

The Indiana Department of Education announced a new partnership with Schoolhouse.world to support students in grades eight through 12 with free tutoring for SAT preparation, math courses and Advanced Placement (AP) courses.

Schoolhouse.world was launched in early 2020 by Sal Khan, also founder of Khan Academy, in response to COVID-19 learning disruptions. The nonprofit connects students with live, small-group tutoring through Zoom at no cost. Tutoring currently focuses on SAT reading, writing and math, with a math focus on pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus and statistics. Support is also available for AP courses including AP Calculus, AP Statistics, AP Chemistry, AP Biology, AP Physics and AP Computer Science.

In addition to resources through Schoolhouse.world, Khan Academy and College Board offer free SAT practice resources. This free resource comes as all Indiana high school juniors prepare to take the SAT this spring. Students can visit Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy – a personalized online program that helps students practice for the SAT with thousands of sample questions, instant feedback, video lessons and full-length practice tests. Nationwide, more than 10 million students have signed up for free SAT practice through Khan Academy.

To learn more about these learning resources, and to sign up for a tutoring session, visit www.schoolhouse.world or www.khanacademy.org.
We are excited to announce that our 2022 application is officially open, and we encourage students in grades 10 or 11 (or international equivalent) from all around the world to apply! We hope you will help share this opportunity:
