Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) Test

Due to complications arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, Altamont has decided to make the application process test optional. Your child is not required to submit a score on the ISEE. However, if you would like your child to take the ISEE, please use this link to learn more about testing options.

If you do not want your child to test, please indicate in the additional comments section of the transcript request form that your child’s most recent standardized testing should be included with his or her records. Schools usually do this anyway, but a reminder never hurts!
