Upper School applicants must take the SSAT (Secondary School Admission Test) or the ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam).
New this year, we are recommending you also complete the Character Skills Snapshot. We've always considered our applicants' character traits in addition to scores, grades, teacher recommendations and writing samples, and this additional optional half-hour Character Skills Snapshot will help us get to know each applicant even more fully as a possible match for GFS.
*Note: There is no additional charge to take the Snapshot once you register for an SSAT. Students planning to take the ISEE who wish to complete the Character Skills Snapshot should contact the GFS Admissions Office in order to gain log-in and access to it. There is a $25 fee for ISEE test takers, however, fee waivers are available for those in need.
Test results are to be sent directly to GFS. To prevent delays, please be sure to list GFS as a score recipient when you register for testing.
Register online at ssat.org or iseetest.org. The SSAT code for GFS is #3397.
