Admissions decisions are based on a combination of factors, which may include a personal interview with the student and his or her parents, academic record, admissions tests, recommendations from teachers, a classroom visit, and other appropriate information (e.g., educational evaluations). Academic readiness or achievement, social and behavioral maturity, motivation, special talents and affiliation with the school will also be considered.
