Given the continued impacts of COVID-19, The Northwest School is implementing a no standardized testing required policy for the 2021-22 admissions season. We remain committed to supporting all families through this process, with a focus on equity and access.

Our admissions committee will continue to focus on academic transcripts, teacher evaluations and narratives, student essays, extracurricular interests, and community engagement. 

Please note, to ensure absolute equity within the admissions process, members of the Admissions Committee will not have access to any ISEE or SSAT results, even from applicants who submit their scores.

4. Attend a Student Visit Day

  • A virtual student visit is a required piece of the application process. We will send you a visit day appointment via e-mail starting in November.
