For Students Entering Grades 2-8

You will need to register your child for the Educational Record Bureau’s Independent School Entrance Exam (ERB ISEE) which will be given in the online format using Chromebooks, in-person at the Bridges Academy 3 times this year.  All tests begin at 9:00 am, with check-in at 8:45 am and the length of the test depends upon the level:

Gr. 3 - approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes

Gr. 4 - approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes

We encourage all families to plan ahead and register as early as possible in order to allow ample time for your child to prepare for the test, as well as to submit the required admissions paperwork. For more information, to register and for preparation materials, including a practice test, please visit https://www.erblearn.org/families/isee-registration/. Registering online and taking the ISEE at Bridges is the most cost effective, however you may also register by phone and/or take the test at one of two test centers on Long Island or utilize the new ERB-Administered At-Home Testing. Please refer to the ERB website (link above) for more details about these alternative options. Wherever you decide to register for the test, please make sure to identify The Bridges Academy as a Score Report Recipient so that we will receive your child’s test scores.
