Admissions Assessment

Please bring your child to the sign-in table in the Lower School corridor through the main gate located next to the Shepard Welcome Center by 8:20 a.m.; we will begin promptly at 8:30. Parents are free to leave campus. We ask parents to return by 10:30; the assessments will conclude between 10:30 and 11:00.

We will provide everything your child will need for the assessment. We recommend your child has breakfast before coming to school. We will provide a small snack for the children during the morning.
