Home Information




Aiken Prep has a selective admission process and admits students as soon as a folder is complete as space allows.  In grades where we are fully enrolled we place qualified students in a wait pool and inform them when there is an opening.

The process for admission includes an admission test that is offered in an open test setting several times a year or, depending on the time of year, administered to an individual student.  For admission to Middle and Upper Schools, students sit for the SSAT (Secondary School Admission Test) that tests student achievement and aptitude.  Aiken Prep chose this test because the scores accurately predict performance on the SAT test used for in college admission.

Students must complete the application form and submit samples of writing, a copy of their school transcript and three references from teachers and friends.  Students are required to visit the school for a personal interview.

Once all information is on file and the testing and interview completed the admission committee decides whether a student is admitted to the school.
