Webber Academy prepares students "to thrive in university and beyond." As such, when screening applicants, the school is seeking children who are demonstrating levels of potential, performance, and character that likely match this end. Experience has shown that students who do not meet certain standards in these areas are not successful at our school, even though there may have been past successes in other less intense learning environments.

While a student’s character tends to be judged more subjectively (through teacher references, visits to our school, etc.), Webber Academy does use a variety of objective means to assess the potential and current performance of a student. The following attachments provide information on admission tests administered to our applicants.

Senior Kindergarten

During the class visit stage of the admissions process, applicants to Senior Kindergarten will complete a Webber Academy assessment booklet.  The booklet comprises a series of work sheets that focus on early literacy, early numeracy, and fine motor skills. 

Grades 1-5

Grade 1-5 applicants will complete one of our in-house assessment packs, which focus on skills and ability in English (reading comprehension and writing) and Math. This test can be taken at Webber or can be sent to an applicants current school for administration.

Submission of recent educational testing by a registered psychologist may eliminate the need for admission testing and expedite the admission process. These should be submitted with the application form if possible.   

Grades 6-12

We accept the SSAT.

For entrance into Grades 6 to 12, Webber Academy uses results from the Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT) for the purposes of admission. Applicant families must register for the test through the SSAT website at http://www.ssat.org/. Testing taken at any official SSATB member site is acceptable and scores can be sent to us directly from SSAT by selecting a score report to be sent to Webber Academy. Either an SSAT Standard Test or an SSAT Flex Test is required.

Please note that a registration ID ticket and photo identification will be required before admission to the testing room.
