Admission is competitive and based on the results of SAT and high school transcript as follows: 

  • 50% on the SAT: (Evidence-Based Reading and Writing + Math) sections 
  • 50% on the standardized high school averages in grades 10 and 11 

The SAT can be taken several times. Students can benefit from “super scoring". (i.e., taking the maximum score for each section from all sessions).

In terms of standardized high school averages, students are compared to their class average and to the average of applicants from the same school.
