Vericant Interview

In order for The Stony Brook School admissions team to get to know our Chinese applicants better and provide the proper attention they deserve, we have partnered with Vericant. Vericant will conduct video interviews and short writing samples with our Chinese applicants. Vericant does not evaluate candidates but, instead, posts the interviews and writing samples online for our admissions team to review.

The Vericant interview will give you an excellent opportunity to showcase your personality and skills to our admissions team and is a required component of the completed application.
