SSAT and ISEE Test Prep at Morphosi Academy

The ISEE

The ISEE (Independent School Entrance Examination) is a three-hour admission test required by independent schools for entrance into grades 5 through 12. This test contains multiple choice questions on five different sections: Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, Mathematics Achievement, and Essay (ungraded). The writing sample is not scored, but it will be sent to the schools to which you apply.

The ISEE has three levels:

  • Lower Level (for students currently in grades 4 and 5)
  • Middle Level (for students in grades 6 and 7)
  • Upper Level (for students in grades 8 through 11)

Morphosi Academy tutors will customize a targeted, individualized study program based on a student's performance on our diagnostic evaluation and on each student's unique learning style, personal strengths, and weaknesses.

Each student will receive specific instruction on the format of the test and on strategies to achieve his/her best score. Class work strengthens the student's skills, and homework provides students with the opportunity to apply the strategies learned in class.
