SAT’s and Educational Plans
All applicants will be interviewed. Kindergarten Applicants and older will take a standardized test for admission. Applicants who have been determined to need or benefit from ESL Support will be required to enroll in ESL Support. Additional interviews with the divisional principal or ESL Coordinator might be scheduled.
Depending on your son’s or daughter’s written and verbal abilities in English, he or she may need to take an English language exam which is administered on our campus prior to admission. If your child is transferring from a non-English speaking educational system (such as Taiwan, Korea, Japan or Thailand), he or she may need to sit for additional exams that will help us determine his or her appropriate grade level.
