Admission Testing

 

Our admission assessments help many of our schools build their community of learners and invite applicants to join the learning community that is right for them. These are highly regarded assessments for students applying to independent schools or specialized public schools requiring entrance exams in the United States and internationally. Designed by experts to measure both reasoning and achievement skills, these assessments have helped parents, students, and schools find the perfect match for decades. 

 

Many families and schools have a habit of referring to our admission assessments simply as the "ERBs." In actuality, we have a variety of admission assessments available. Before registering to take an assessment, you may want to confirm the specific name of the assessment that the school to which you are applying has requested.

 Achievement Testing

Our achievement assessments provide a powerful, objective lens through which our schools can examine the current skills of their students and access information that assists their teachers as they foster academic growth. These assessments are usually administered by your student's current school and are designed to drive targeted instruction, spotlight strengths, and identify areas for improvement. They are typically administered to provide insights for your student's school and the results may or may not be shared with parents.

Students often skip over unfamiliar words. Word Voyage teaches them to slow down, look for familiar roots, and associate these root-meaning clues with the context outside the word.
