Note – when you log in, you may encounter an error, indicating that we are not accepting applications for 2019-20.  For those submitting late applications for the 2018-19 school year, please change the application year, which will allow you to proceed.

For families applying to grades 7-12, we encourage applicants to sit for either the SSAT or ISEE exam.  These exams are not required and are not weighted heavily in the admission process.  Instead, they are a helpful tool to guide course selection and other academic decisions, in the event that an applicant ultimately enrolls at Kew-Forest.  For more information on test dates and registration, please click on the links above.  For consideration during our standard admission timeline, applicants must sit for either exam by January 10th.
