PSSA & Keystone Testing
Like all public schools, AACMS is required by the Pennsylvania Department of Education to administer the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) exams to our students each spring. Testing dates vary by school year. Please avoid scheduling vacations or other planned student absences during PSSA Testing; students who are absent from school during testing will be required to complete the assessment on an alternate date.
