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 towards taking the SAT in the third and fourth years.

Junior/Senior transfers are required to submit PSAT (or similar) scores. If these are not available, the ISEE test must be taken.

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.

ERB’s fee for the ISEE test during 2019-20 is $125 for online registration and an additional $25 for phone registration.  Testing at a Prometric Office is $200.  Phone registration number: 800-446-0320 or 919-956-8524.  Be sure to register early for the test (minimum two weeks in advance), as walk-in registration at the test location is more costly and subject to availability.

Students may take the test at any location as long as the results are forwarded to the Academy using the St. Thomas More Academy ERB number.  The ERB number is 344656.
