3. For students applying to grades 6-11 for the 2021-22 academic year, Kent Place School will adopt a test optional policy for the SSAT/ISEE. Our decision is a result of the challenges associated with testing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. By February 1st, students applying to grades 6-11 will have the option to submit one of the following:
a) test scores from the SSAT
b) a graded humanities-based writing assignment and a graded math assessment from this academic year. (Please scan and send to email@example.com)
Regardless of the option that you choose, please know that we will fairly assess each student's application. Our application review process is comprehensive and holistic, and the entirety of the student's application is considered in context.

The Transcript should include current year grades, final grades from the previous two years, results of any standardized testing and attendance record. The Transcript must be uploaded by February 1.
5. Ask current English and math teachers to complete the Grades 6-12 Teacher Recommendation Form. If the same faculty member teaches both of these subjects, please ask the current science or social studies teacher to submit the second recommendation.

The Grades 6-12 Teacher Recommendation Form can be sent directly to the teacher using the e-mail link found in your child's checklist tab in the online application.
