Standardized testing requirement

All students applying to middle and high school (Grades 5-12) must submit the results of a recent standardized test as part of their application. Listed are accepted tests along with registration information. Many of the tests are offered around the world at host school sites or Prometric (computer-based testing) centers. Some applicants may have already taken one of the exams as part of their current school's assessment program. New options allow families to choose a date to take the ISEE from their own homes, either proctored by ASL or the testing company.

Please plan in advance for testing. Registration can fill up quickly and testing providers often have deadlines two to three weeks in advance of the testing date. Students requesting to test with accommodations (for example, extra time) should plan at least six weeks in advance to allow time for approval. 

We know that this requirement generates the most questions and concerns from our prospects, so please take time to read through the information below and let our office know how we can assist you.
