Practice Entrance Exams - Middle and Upper School

We invite students in grades 4 and 7 to register for and take practice Entrance Exams.

The next practice exam will take place on campus on Saturday, March 6, 2021. 

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 (Pre-HSPT). The Pre-HSPT significantly raises a student’s comfort level with the HSPT 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 are encouraged to register for a practice exam.
