In response to recent revelations in the news about the ongoing FBI investigation into cheating on college entrance exams and an admissions fraud scheme at some colleges, and the attention it has brought to the public about unfair advantages given to some students applying to college, we would like to make the following statement:

At Morrissey-Compton, our work is based on honesty and trust that we will administer, score, and present testing results in a clear and unbiased manner. We are committed to following the ethical principles established by our respective professional organizations, the American Psychological Association and the Association of Educational Therapists, to treat all students with integrity and in an equitable and respectful manner. We are also dedicated to providing the same quality services to all families, regardless of their ability to afford the cost, through our scholarship program.
