To fulfill Admission Review all students must take and pass the PPST Reading, PPST Writing, and PPST Mathematics Praxis tests. These three tests are available on the computer at the Sylvan Learning Center, located in the Summit Plaza near Sam’s Club and Giant Eagle on Peach Street. Taking the tests at Sylvan rather than through ETS provides you with the flexibility of taking them when you want to, not when they are offered. Also, scores for the Math and Reading tests are given immediately following completion.

Simply call 864-6100 to schedule an appointment.

It is IMPERATIVE that your scores are sent to Mercyhurst College (code: 2410) if you plan on becoming certified in Pennsylvania. If you do not, there will be a $35 charge to have your scores sent. If there are any further questions contact the Education Office.
