  • Step 3. Admissions Testing Score Reports

    Standardized Testing Optional
    At this time, standardized testing (SSAT, ISEE, PSAT, SAT, ACT) IS NOT REQUIRED as a part of the application process. If you have any testing that you would like to submit via the parent portal, you will see the option to do so.
     
    English Language Testing (For Non-Native English Speakers)
    All applicants for whom English is not their first language are required to take an English language proficiency test. Our office prefers the TOEFL exam. When registering, please use the following code (8083) in order to send us the applicant's scores directly. Please note that our office does not accept TOEFL's MyBest Score

    If the TOEFL is not available, international applicants can consider one of the following exams: IELTS, Cambridge, ELTiS, or Duolingo.

    Even if the applicant has studied in the United States for several years or is currently attending an international school with an American or British curriculum, the student may still need to take a test. Please contact the Admissions Office at global@sbs.org for further questions.

    Please note that any applicant who is seeking learning accommodations with a 504 Plan or an IEP must submit a recent neuropsychological testing report or a psychoeducational testing report. This can be uploaded within the parent portal once you apply. 
  • Step 4. Recommendation Forms

    SB Global requires an English teacher recommendation and a math teacher recommendation from the current teacher (2020-2021 academic year). If your family will be applying for Early Enrollment, you may use recommendations from your child’s teachers from the 2019-2020 academic year.

    All forms should be sent electronically through our parent portal. If school personnel experience any trouble sending these forms, please contact the Admissions Office (global@sbs.org or 631-751-1800 x1).
  • Step 5. Official School Reports and Transcripts/Report Cards

    Each applicant must arrange for the Admissions Office to receive the following items:
    • Official School Reports/Transcript Form Release
    • Final report cards/transcripts from the previous two academic years
    • Report card/transcript for the current academic year, which should include grades from at least one marking period or one quarter

    Please
    send all transcripts electronically through our parent portal.  Any questions or difficulties can be directed to the Admissions Office at global@sbs.org.
     
    For International Applicants: If transcripts are in a foreign language, please include a notarized English translation.
Please note that neither financial aid nor merit based scholarships are currently available to those applying for SB Global.
