The Standardized Test

Standardized testing is one of many ways our admission team gets to know each prospective candidate and is a required aspect of the application process. All candidates are required to submit standardized testing taken between August 2019 and January 4, 2020 for Fall 2020 admission consideration. Please do not hesitate to contact our office with any standardized testing questions.

Candidates for grades 9 and 10 should take the SSAT, Secondary School Admission Test. Also acceptable is the ISEE, Independent School Entrance Examination, administered by the Educational Records Bureau.

Candidates applying for grade 11 should take the ISEE, PLAN, PSAT, Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test, or the SSAT.

Candidates applying for grade 12, or for a postgraduate year, should take the ACT, PSAT or SAT Reasoning Test.

If English has not been your primary language of instruction for at least three years or English is not your primary language spoken at home, you are required to take the TOEFL in addition to the standardized test appropriate to your application grade. If standardized testing dates are not available in your country, please contact our office for assistance. A minimum TOEFL score of 105 is required for application.

Candidates who do not have access to these tests, or who have questions about using other tests, should contact the Admission Office.
