Global Village Academy is a public school and students enrolled at GVA are required to take Ohio's State Tests and any other examinations prescribed by law. In addition, there may be other requirements for students at the school that are prescribed by law.

According to the Ohio Department of Education, "State achievement tests tell us how well our students are growing in the knowledge and skills outlined in Ohio’s Learning Standards. These tests help guide and strengthen future teaching so we can be sure that we are preparing our students for long-term success in school, college, careers and life. Test results also allow citizens to know how their local schools are performing compared to others around the state."
All GVA students will test online per the requirements of the Ohio Department of education.  These tests are state mandated and students must take them; there are no exemptions. Unless your child is significantly ill, please be sure he/she is in attendance during the testing window. Family vacations during testing windows will not be tolerated.
