Step 3: Schedule an Assessment (Pre-K-5th Grade)

An Admissions assessment is required for all applicants entering Pre-Kindergarten through 5th Grade. Once your application has been submitted, you will be able to schedule an assessment on the assessment calendar listed in the online application checklist. Please contact the Admissions Office if you need to schedule a different day or time.

Step 4: Schedule ISEE (6th-8th Grade)

6th-8th Grade Applicants: St. John’s requires all Middle Division applicants to take the ISEE. St. John’s will be releasing onsite testing dates in December. If you have already taken the ISEE, please submit your scores using the school’s ERB code: 054209.

Step 5: Schedule a Buddy Day (3rd-8th Grade)

The Buddy Day allows faculty to assess an applicant as well as provide a prospective student a “day-in-the-life” of a St. John’s student. A half day Buddy Day is optional for 1st through 2nd grade applicants. Third through 5th grade applicants have a half day Buddy Day during which they will also be administered the Admission assessment. A full-day Buddy Day is required for 6th through 8th grade applicants. Buddy Days can be scheduled on the calendars listed in the online application checklist. Please contact the Admissions Office if you need to schedule a different day or time.
