We are pleased that you have decided to become a candidate for admission to St. Mark’s School.
All steps necessary to complete the application process are outlined below. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
COVID-19 Standardized Test Impact
Due to the ongoing challenges presented with the SSAT at Home test and the numerous cancellations that have occurred, St. Mark's has made the decision to go test-optional with regard to the SSAT and ISEE. During the application season for the 2022-2023 school year, St. Mark's will remain test-optional for the SSAT and ISEE.
What exactly does this mean?
- Test-optional means we will look at any SSAT or ISEE test scores you have chosen to send to us but should you choose not to send us scores, your candidacy will not be in jeopardy.
- If you would like to submit a test, in addition to the SSAT paper-based test and ISEE at Prometric, St. Mark’s will accept the SSAT Flex, SSAT at Home, and ISEE at Home.
- TOEFL or IELTS and Vericant are still required for international applicants and St. Mark's will be accepting the following in addition to the TOEFL iBT and IELTS: the IELTS Indicator, TOEFL IBT Special Home Edition and TOEFL ITP Plus Vericant until regular testing resumes. Please review all of the information within our International Applicant FAQ.
- Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns about testing.
Letters of decision will be posted to the St. Mark's Online Portal** on March 10, and your reply is expected by April 10. Students who are accepted will be invited to Re-Visit campus during select dates in early April.
**Applicants, if your parent(s)/guardian(s) have not received their account activation email invitation to the St. Mark's Online Portal by March 1, please email email@example.com immediately.
