matching the best learning opportunities and school with your child
Our mandatory admission assessments help Walden to build its community of learners and invite applicants to join the learning community that is right for them. The highly regarded ERB (Educational Records Bureau) assessments are designed for students applying to independent schools that require entrance exams for U.S. and international students. Designed by experts to measure both reasoning and achievement skills, these assessments have helped parents, students, and schools find the perfect match for decades.
While we want to assure our families that Walden admissions takes into account an applicant's grade records, Shadow Day experience, behavior, etc. we use our assessments to have a well-defined and consistent baseline to review all prospective students. With that said, favorable assessment results will reflect scores of 5 stanine (a method of scaling test scores on a nine-point standard scale) and above.
