Learn About the ISEE

The Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) is administered by the non-profit group Educational Records Bureau (ERB), which current private school families may recognize from the popular in-school exam CTP-4.

Students can take the ISEE up to three times a year, and they can choose which scores to submit for schools to see. The test is generally administered at local-area private schools on pencil and paper WITHOUT a calculator.

Each of the five sections of the ISEE is scored from 1 to 9, with 9 being best but scores of 4, 5, and 6 being average. The ISEE is a peer-normed test, meaning that scores are determined by how well students did in prior years.

The ISEE is offered in multiple levels depending to which grade your child is applying: Upper (9-12), Middle (7&8), Lower (5&6), and Primary (2-4). Click on a level below to learn more about each level.
