List of 5 items.

  • 1. Application (Completed online)

    Our application includes both a Student Statement (to be completed by the student) and a Parent Statement (to be completed by parents). A $75 USD application fee must be submitted with the application. We also accept the SAO (Standard Application Online).
  • 2. Teacher Recommendations (Completed online)

    In addition to your application, you will need to have two current teacher recommendation forms sent to Indian Springs. Math and English recommendations are required. A third recommendation is optional. These recommendation forms are sent to your teachers via our online admission portal.
  • 3. Standardized Testing

    Indian Springs requires all applicants to take the appropriate standardized test for their grade level:
    • Grades 7-10: Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT) CODE 4084.
    • Grades 10-12: PSAT, ACT and/or SAT preferred. SSAT is acceptable.
    • International Students must submit the TOEFL in addition to the SSAT (Test Code 8133).
  • 4. Transcript

    For the school to properly review a candidate's application, we must have the latest official transcript from the candidate's current school. We prefer to see the student's mid-year grades. Most schools require parental permission to release an official transcript to Indian Springs.
  • 5. Personal Interview

    An interview is required for all student applicants. A campus visit is also recommended. If travel to our campus is not possible, we may be able to arrange a Skype interview.
