What’s the process for enrolling in boarding school? Are any special tests required?
The process begins by identifying schools either in your general area or that specialize in the talents of your child. Once you visit several campuses, you’ll have a good idea of which schools will provide your student with the best possible educational experience for them. Your child will then take an entrance exam. There are two main tests – the SSAT and the ISEE. Some schools accept both tests, while others accept one or the other. For international students, the TOEFL Junior (Test of English as a Foreign Language) test is required. You can start your journey here. Begin by locating schools in your preferred geographic location and requesting information on the schools that interest you. Then click on the links to the tests your child will need to take. TABS is the best resource for learning all about boarding schools, how to apply and what to expect.
