Entrance Test Information

RSGC has created an evaluation process that will assess a variety of criteria including critical thinking and communication skills, literacy and numeracy. The test will take approximately one hour and involve three components: basic math skills; problem-solving and creative writing. Our student-centered admissions process will continue to look at academic skills, aptitude, character and potential through report cards, in-house testing, interviews, confidential school reports and observations to provide a complete and personalized picture of each candidate. Each candidate will ask their current or past teacher to provide a confidential school report.
