Paper test registration materials will be available the second week of September at all Boston area schools, BPS Welcome Centers and all Boston Public Library branches.
In order to attend Boston Public Schools, a student must reside in the City of Boston.
Many parents ask us what they should do if their child is going to apply for the Boston exam schools, but will also apply to other private or independent schools.
"Families applying to private and independent schools, in addition to the Boston exam schools, should consider taking the ISEE at a national test site. A national test administration also includes an essay portion (the BPS test administration does not include the essay.) It is the parent's responsibility to schedule, pay, and assure that their child tests no later than Saturday, November 18, 2017. Please remember to select the Boston Exam Schools, school code 888888, when you register for a national test. Test scores must be received by the BPS by Friday, December 8, 2017.
To register for a national exam, visit
. Please note that students may sit for only one test administration within a four-month period. If national testing is selected, parents are not required to register for the November 4th ISEE with Boston Public Schools."

Is Your Child Going to Retake the ACT or SAT
Test this Fall?
Plan for your child to take a standardized test at least twice to give them the best chance of a high score.
The next SAT will be October 7th and then November 4th.
The next ACT will be October 28th and then December 9th.
Our tutors have been fully trained in the new content
and test-taking strategies of both the SAT and ACT tests. We focus on time-management and customize our instruction to meet the needs of each student.
If you are not sure whether your child should take the SAT or ACT, please see the article below.
