STUDENT VISIT: Students entering Grades 6-12 will spend the day with their current grade. This visit allows your daughter to meet the girls who will be her classmates, experience Baldwin’s unique learning environment, and picture herself as a Baldwin girl. Once we receive your daughter’s application, we will contact you to arrange a visit.
TESTING: Testing is required for all applicants entering Grades 6-12. Students must submit the results of the Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT), the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE), or Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-V (WISC-V). The SSAT or ISEE are preferred over the WISC-V. 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.
