All incoming Pusch Ridge students in grades 6-12 must take an entrance test which includes reading, vocabulary, and math placement. Testing is done through a third party, ERB. The cost is $120. You can google ISEE entrance tests if you are interested in a study guide to help prepare for testing. Students wishing to enroll in Honors English must also take a writing prompt which takes an additional 45 minutes. Bring two #2 pencils and a book in case you finish the test early. Incoming K-5 students are tested on an individual basis.
Prior to taking the test, a family must have completed their on-line application.
The enrollment fee is $150 and will be billed within the contract upon acceptance.
Due to the increase of enrollment there will be three waves of acceptances for the 2019-20 school year. The most qualified mission appropriate students will fill vacancies first. Waves of acceptance are February 23, April 28 and June 29.
