    Applicants to Forms I and II will complete age-appropriate assessments with a teacher during their visit.

We will send you individual registration information after your daughter's visit is scheduled. Form V applicants take the ISEE at a scheduled testing date. Please review test dates and register your daughter for this assessment online or by calling (800) 989-3721.

    Teacher Recommendation

    Sign the recommendation form and give it to your daughter’s current teacher after November 1 so that the teacher has time to get to know her. The teacher should send the recommendation form directly to CSG Admission Office.
