Everest Academy does not require any testing or testing scores. Testing is not required by the State of Alabama, but some families may find it beneficial for evaluating their children. Testing is optional, so parents are responsible for getting their children tested.
You can order a test for evaluating your child, administer it at home and send the test back to these companies for grading. They will send you the results.
Please note that if you are planning on putting your child back in the public/private school setting, having test scores could be a plus, especially for a high schooler. I strongly recommend that you, as the parent/guardian, administer a CAT (California Achievement Test). The CAT is a standardized test for grades k-12. I can not guarantee the school will accept the test and promote your student, but it would be a very responsible action. Scores are mailed to you within 2 weeks of the date they receive your returned testing materials.
