The purpose of admissions testing is to make certain that our school's academic program is a good match for applying students, and to help guide course placement for Upper School students. A CHS Online Application and Application Fee must be submitted before admissions tests are scheduled.
If prospective students have taken a standardized test within the past year, please submit a copy to the admissions' office together with school records/transcripts. In many cases, this will fulfill the requirement and additional testing may not be required. (Please see a partial list of accepted tests below.)
After your Kindergartener’s application has been submitted, a private screening will be scheduled called the Kindergarten Readiness Test. It is a “show what you know” 25-minute assessment for all children entering Kindergarten.
- OLSAT 8 measures cognitive abilities that relate to a student's academic success in school. By assessing a student's verbal, nonverbal, and quantitative ability, OLSAT 8 provides valuable information to enhance the insights gained from traditional achievement tests.
For high school applicants, the following are also accepted: PSAT, SAT, ACT, and PLAN.
Students can register online for the ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam), if applying to several schools, and submit a copy of the results to CHS.
