Entrance Exams

All students entering the 7th and 9th grades are required to take the CBA entrance exam as part of our application process. 

  • Pre-registrations are accepted at Open House 
  • Walk-in registrants are highly encouraged
  • $20.00 fee to take the exam
  • Entrance exams are typically given on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of November; Students may choose either Saturday to take the exam (there is no advantage of one day over the other) and students may not take both exams
  • The exam begins at 8:00 a.m. and no supplies are required — we provide pencils, scrap paper and snacks
  • Use of calculators is not permitted
  • Breaks are given between testing sections

The CBA entrance exam is a standardized test that covers the areas of mathematics, English and reading comprehension. There is also an essay required on a topic of our choosing, which allows us to obtain a sample of a student’s writing capabilities. The exams are scored by a testing company and are used as a component in the admissions application process.
