We assess our youngest candidates on campus and also have brief interviews with prospective parents; however, if you live overseas or cannot attend the session, we will make arrangements to meet with your family online.

  • K3 and K4 - Saturday, February 22, 2025


GRADE 2-11 ASSESSMENT INFORMATION:
For applicants in Grades 2-11, submission of current MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) test results is mandatory. In case your child does not have the required test results, you can easily register to take the tests with us online before the deadline.

Grade 2 candidates will undergo assessments in Reading and Math, while Grade 3-11 candidates will be evaluated in English Language Usage, Reading, and Math.

Additionally, some students may need to take an online WIDA Screener assessment with one of our English Language Learner (ELL) teachers. The WIDA Screener is designed for new students in grades K–12 to determine their English language proficiency level. A member of the Admissions Team will contact candidates to arrange for the WIDA Screener.
