On the last day, students will have the opportunity to take the Padua Placement Test and count it as their “official” score for 2018 Padua enrollment.  If they are not satisfied with their score, they will have an opportunity to retake the test in the fall at no additional cost.

Your experience starts at 9 a.m. and is completed at 12 p.m. each day.  Program is limited to 80 students.
