SOL Testing

2024-2025 SOL Testing

SOL End of Course Exams are used by the state to verify credits needed for graduation and to satisfy federal accountability requirements for all FCPS schools. Usually, students need 5 verified credits (one per subject) to be ready for graduation:

  • Math (Algebra 1, Geometry, or Algebra 2)
  • Science (Biology, Chemistry, or Geosystems)
  • English Reading
  • English Writing
  • History and Social Studies (World History 1, World History 2, or USVA History)

However, depending on your student's course history and date of enrollment, verified credits can be earned using substitute tests or credit accommodations and your student may not need to take an SOL at the end of the year. More information regarding testing requirements will be sent out throughout the school year. You may also reach out to your student's counselor or to the Assessment Coach, Laura Fitzsimmons ([email protected]). 

The calendar for end-of-course SOL exams will be made available after the start of the school year. Please check back at a later date, and encourage your students to check their email for testing schedules and updates.
