Charlotte Area Independent Schools (CAIS)
Dr. Lisa Pennington also serves as a member of the private schools' admissions team (CAIS).
CAIS Admissions Testing is appropriate for any child who will be eligible for JK/TK, Kindergarten or Grades 1-4 the following school year. Applicants receive a cognitive assessment recommended by the Charlotte Area Independent Schools (CAIS) which includes the following:
Rising JK/TK, K and Grade 1 applications receive the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence (WPPSI-IV)
Rising grades 2-4 applicants are administered the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-V)
The standardized cognitive assessment is one of the tools used to provide parents and schools with an objective, standardized evaluation of your child for admissions purposes.
