Step 5: student Testing

Students applying to Grades 6-12 must choose ONE of the following two options for their Entrance Assessment. Both options are weighted equally in the admission process. 

  • OPTION 1: Applicants may take The Independent School Entrance Examination (ISEE). To register, visit https://www.erblearn.org/parents/isee-registration. Park School’s ISEE school code is 210812 and must be noted on the registration form in order for Park to receive the scores. 
                                                                 OR
  • OPTION 2: Applicants may complete a 2-part project-based assessment:
    • Part 1 - Submit a graded written assignment from this fall or from one of the last two years that demonstrates the student's ability to advocate for, defend, or critique an idea.
                AND
    • Part 2 - Submit an independently written project or academic piece of the students’ choice and then write a reflection (in two paragraphs or less, and without any outside help), critically assessing the piece. For example: Why did you choose to submit this piece? If you had to do this project (or piece of writing) again, what would you change and why? What does this project (or piece of writing) demonstrate about you?

Note: In lieu of the ISEE exam, applicants may forward a score report from the Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT), the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT), or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT).


Admission decisions are based on careful assessment of the student’s ability to achieve academic, social, and personal success at Park. Each decision is made on an individual basis.
