Admissions Testing

St. Thomas More Academy employs the Educational Records Bureau (ERB) to administer and grade the Independent School Entrance Examination (ISEE) for rising 9th and 10th graders.  Many private schools in our area and many more college preparatory schools throughout the nation use this test for evaluative purposes.  The ISEE is an excellent tool for any college preparatory school, as the results are often very similar to those the student receives after taking the PSAT  in the first preparatory year.  The ISEE gives the school and parents a good sense of where the student is on a trajectory toward taking the SAT in the third and fourth years.

This test is regularly scheduled at St. Thomas More Academy. Students can also take the test elsewhere and forward results to the Academy.

Parents should check the test schedule and register students at the ISEE registration web page.  ERB also offers an on-line student guide to help students prepare for the test.  STMA also has guides available upon request.

ERB’s fee for the test (2013-14) is $98 with online registration.  Phone registration carries additional fees (800-446-0320 or 919-956-8524).  Be sure to register early for the test, as walk-in registration at the test location is more costly and subject to availability.

St. Thomas More Academy’s ERB number is 344656.
