(TOEFL) exam and the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exam. All test scores must be sent directly to the Academy. The TOEFL exam code is C052.  The IELTS exam does not have a school code, but has a search function where you will select Sewickley Academy as the recipient of scores.
