Episcopal Collegiate seeks to bring together a group of talented and capable students who will benefit and grow from our dynamic and nurturing environment. The Admission Committee evaluates each student on the basis of a personal visit, admission testing, academic record, and teacher recommendations (all requirements are grade and age appropriate). The committee also places an emphasis on citizenship, emotional maturity, curiosity and intellectual ability. Episcopal Collegiate best serves those students who are prepared and motivated to meet the requirements of a college preparatory environment.

Pre-K through Grade 1:
Applicants will be asked to visit campus to spend part of a school morning (Pre-Kindergarten-1) or a full day with their age group (2nd-6th). Episcopal Collegiate teachers will spend time with each candidate to observe cognitive, physical, and social development. Students applying for grades 7th -12th will shadow with a student host arranged by the Admissions Office. When shadowing we pair students together by current grade level (age) and by interests. We ask applicants to submit their most recent test scores from one or more of the following tests: SSAT, PSAT, SAT, ACT, ERB, ISEE, Stanford, Iowa Test of Basic Skills, Otis-Lennon, or other official state standardized test. Episcopal Collegiate reserves the right to require an applicant to take additional testing.
