Celebrating Academic Achievement

Northwestern University's Midwest Academic Talent Search (NUMATS) provides opportunities for high-achieving students in grades 3-9 with three options for out-of-level testing.  There are several testing dates and locations available for students to take ACT, or SAT through NUMATS.


Through our unique consortium, we can provide a private, age-appropriate testing environment for our students who participate in the ACT and SAT, address specific questions from our students and their parents, and recognize and celebrate the achievement of our students who earned high scores on these tests.

NUMATS Awards Ceremony:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NUMATS ceremony has been canceled for 2021. We look forward to returning to celebrate our students in 2022

Each year WSCAE sponsors an awards ceremony to honor students who excelled on the annual Center for Talent Development Test.
