Private School Admissions Testing 
  Private School StudentNavigating the private school admissions process is challenging and oftentimes exhausting! Potential students and their parents must attend interviews, tour the campus grounds, complete lengthy applications and complete admissions testing. Very stressful indeed!

We hope you will allow us to remove some of the pressure you are feeling today. Our team of psychologists are highly skilled at administering the necessary tests required for admissions consideration to your preferred private school. We typically find that parents have a more difficult time with the whole admissions process than their children! That being said, we provide encouragement to our parents so that they will be more calm and relaxed which will help their child feel more calm and relaxed.

Additionally, all our testing is conducted in a relaxed, child-friendly environment designed to elicit your child's best performance.

The various tests used are administered according to age, not grade. Age is determined based on your child's age on the day of evaluation, not your child's age when school opens in the fall. There is no reading required on any of the tests. These tests are measures of cognitive ability, not academic achievement. Academic achievement testing is available at our office; however, it is not usually required for private schools' admissions.

Please know that when you schedule your child for this test, it will be your responsibility to know which test your child needs for the particular school to which you are applying.
