What Abelard School says about their admissions requirements:

Applications will be evaluated according to four criteria: interview, test score, report card, and entrance essay (written at the school). Applicants are additionally invited to submit a piece of work of which they are proud and that demonstrates their potential; if they choose to include this, it will be taken into consideration along with the rest of their application.

All applicants must submit the following:

  • Standardized test scores  -- applicants may write the Abelard test, or they may submit SSAT
    test results written at a standardized test location within the same year
  • A copy of their most recent school report card
  • An entrance essay (must be written at the Abelard School)
  • OPTIONAL: A piece of work that reflects the applicant's interests or talents
    (examples may include artwork, music recordings, creative writing, and so on)
