Upper School and Middle School Practice Exams

We invite current fourth and seventh graders to register and take a practice Entrance Exam on March 7, 2020 or May 2, 2020.

These practice exams help students to familiarize themselves with question format, content, structure, and timing. All testers will receive a detailed profile of their performance on the exam by mail. Please note that practice test results are not used for applicant review or scholarship awards.

Practice High School Placement Test (Pre-HSPT)
Seventh graders are invited to register for the practice High School Placement Exam (HSPT). The Pre-HSPT significantly raises a student’s comfort level with the HSPT exam and helps her to identify areas for improvement in advance of the official exam in the fall. This exam is intended solely for practice purposes and is scored according to seventh grade norms.

Middle School Practice Exam
Fourth-grade students who are planning to take the Middle School Entrance & Scholarship Exam this fall (2020) are encouraged to register for this practice exam.
