The ISEE Test

Applicants for grades 6-12 must take Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE). Visit the Independent School Entrance Exam website to register for the next ISEE test. We encourage you to register for the test given at St. George's, typically in January. Please call the Admission office at 901-457-2150 to secure a walk-in space for this test date if you do not meet the registration deadline.

Questions about the ISEE Test? Click on some of the most commonly asked questions below. If you have further questions, please contact the Admission office.

How long does it take to complete the ISEE?

Approximately three hours, not including time to read testing directions and breaks. Parents should arrive at the school to pick up students no earlier than three hours after the testing time listed on the ISEE Verification Letter. Please be respectful of testing staff and pick up students promptly.

Are there breaks during the test?

Yes, there are two five-minute breaks, one after the second section of the test, and the other after the fourth section of the test.

What may I take with me to the exam?

You should take pencils and pens, as it says on your ISEE Verification Letter. You may also take a small snack to consume only during the breaks. Many schools provide snacks, but they are not required to do so. Do not bring cell phones, beepers, calculators, books, scrap paper, or anything else with you. If a student does not comply, he or she will be excused from the testing and the test will be invalidated.

My child is ill. What do I do?

If your child is sick, you should use your best judgement as ISEE strives for optimal testing conditions. A student may not test more than once in a six-month period. If you need to postpone testing due to illness, please call the ISEE Operations Office at 1-800-446-0320.

My child cannot go to the test that day and I need to change the test date. What do I do?

You should call the ISEE Operations Office as soon as possible to reschedule testing. There is a $15 fee for change of test site and/or test date. If you wish to cancel the exam, please call the ISEE Operations Office within four weeks of your scheduled test for a refund. All refunds have a $15 processing fee deducted.

In the event of inclement weather, how do I find out if the test will be held?

Call the ISEE test site directly, check the school's website, or monitor local television stations to see if they will be holding or rescheduling the test.
