Admissions testing is one of several tools JCS uses to evaluate candidates and will be used in conjunction with the application, grades, recommendation letters, and the admissions meeting to ascertain information about the applicant.
As part of the admissions process, each incoming PK3 student will participate in an observation during a school day. These observations are intended for us to get to know your student and help assess classroom readiness. Contact the East Campus Admissions Director to set up an observation.
Each incoming K-1st grade student will sit with the Admissions Director to complete a grade level readiness test. This interactive time with our staff will take approximately 1/2 hour and will assess the basic skills needed to be successful at Jupiter Christian.
The Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) is the test used by Jupiter Christian School to evaluate incoming 2-12th grade student applicants. Once all admissions documents have been submitted, Admissions staff will schedule the ISEE test. Testing may be waived for candidates with academic standing exceeding admissions requirements. JCS offers the test on a handful of Saturdays (see schedule below) or by appointment during the work week.
