  • Testing

    Testing is required for all applicants entering Grades 6-12. Students must complete a Baldwin English Assessment. This assessment takes one hour and assesses comprehension and writing skills. No specific preparation is required, and we will work with you to schedule this assessment for your daughter.

    Students must submit the results of the Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT) or the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE). Our SSAT code is 1468 and our ISEE code is 390480. There are several area psychologists who administer the ISEE or SSAT individually; the websites SSAT.org and ERBLearn.org will offer locations and times of group testing.
