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.
Based on the grade level of your child, please select one of the buttons below to schedule an assessment.
how to schedule your isee assessment
In order to schedule an assessment, each student must complete the Walden School online application and pay the $60 application fee. This fee covers your student's Shadow Day and a portion of the ISEE assessment. Upon submission of a complete application, an applicant may schedule their assessment via the Walden School admissions portal.*
*Note: Once you schedule through Walden's admissions portal, the admissions team will register your student's assessment with ERB; the assessment will be held at Walden School on the day and time you reserved.
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.
