Students entering Grades 7-8 are required to take the Independent Schools Entrance Exam (ISEE). Boston Public School students will no longer take the ISEE in their district schools; however, to be considered for a merit scholarship, a student must take the ISEE. Non-merit financial aid is available to those who qualify through our financial aid application.
Students entering Grades 9-11 can take any one of the following:
Grade 9: High School Placement Test (HSPT) or Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT)
Grades 10 or 11: HSPT, SSAT, ISEE, MCAS, PARCC, PSAT, SAT, or ACT
Throughout the fall, we will offer on-site testing. Students will need to register for the tests directly through the testing organizations.
