Testing Dates

Admissions testing is required for all applicants (testing for grades Pre-K-1 is a developmental assessment). Current Covid-19 guidelines do not require masks to be worn, so masks are optional. Currently the Covid-19 vaccine is not required, but please note that immunizations are required to attend The City School.  The admissions tests will be scheduled only after receipt of an application, $75 application fee, a copy of the applicant’s birth certificate, and the completion of the Release Records Authorization Form found on our admissions checklist.  Click here to apply. Note: Regardless of exemptions of any type, immunizations are required for admissions at The City School.

Once an application and fee are submitted parents are able to view an admissions checklist on the parent portal account created to begin submitting required documents to move through our admissions process.  Elementary testing (Pre-K-5) is campus specific and scheduled on an individual basis after 3:00 pm on selected testing dates (summer hours vary). Families will be contacted via email with appointment dates and times.  Upper School group testing for grades 6-12 is held on our Poplar campus. Appointments will be scheduled upon receipt of the above testing criteria.  Upper school group testing dates are as follows:
