Submit two ISAAGNY teacher recommendations from the applicant's current math and English teachers through your online application portal. Schools should not send recommendations until November, at the earliest, to give faculty time to know your child.
Due to the pandemic, Grace is "test-optional" for the 2020-2021 admissions and enrollment cycle. We are happy to receive any student's testing report(s) and add them to the applicant's file. We will ask that in lieu or in addition to an ISEE or SSAT that all of our applicants sit for an online in-house assessment to be administered by our office in January. No test prep is required or encouraged.
Applicants must send us a copy of a graded essay with the teacher's comments visible. The essay should not be a creative writing paper; it may be selected by the student from a current English or history class. This essay should be uploaded via the online application portal.
Applicants must submit a 500-750 word essay from a choice of prompts available on your online application portal. In an effort to streamline the high school application process for student applicants, Grace Church School participates in the ISAAGNY common essay.
If you have any questions about the application process, please email Admissions Associate, Shahara Ahmed.
