International candidates for grades 9 and 10 must take the Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT). Applicants should investigate as soon as possible test center availability in their country, as the SSAT is not administered with the same frequency outside of the U.S. If the SSAT is not given in the applicant’s country, we will evaluate other standardized test results from the applicant’s record.

We only accept test scores directly from SSAT; we do not accept copies from your school or consultant. To prevent delays be sure to list us as a score recipient when you register for your test. We will also accept the ISEE in lieu of the SSAT.
- International candidates for grade 11 may submit results from an SSAT, or alternatively, a PSAT, SAT, or ACT taken within the current school year.
- International candidates for grade 12 and the post-graduate year must submit results from a PSAT, SAT, or ACT taken within the current year.
All international applicants must demonstrate proficiency in oral and written English. For applicants whose native language is not English, and whose language of instruction for the most recent four years of schooling has not been English, the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required.

A formal interview is required for admission to Lawrenceville. We offer interview appointments from September through January, and recommend your visit to campus as an important part of getting to feel the warmth and strength of community that makes Lawrenceville a special place. However, if you are not able to visit Lawrenceville for a formal interview, you may refer to our International Alumni Admission Network to schedule an interview closer to home. We also offer interviews via skype on select dates. Please contact us at email@example.com to notify us if you have scheduled an Alumni interview, or to schedule an appointment with an admissions counselor via skype.
Special requests for an interview must be made prior to December 15, with an interview completion deadline of January 15. Applicants must have submitted an Inquiry form and Part I (the Candidate Statement) of the online application prior to requesting an Alumni interview, or appointment by skype.
If the deadline for scheduling an interview has passed, we will waive the interview requirement. Once the admission committee reviews an application, we may contact an applicant for additional information as needed.
Lawrenceville now uses the Standard Application Online from SSAT (SAO). This is the only official Lawrenceville application. A printed paper version of the application no longer exists. To begin the process, visit www.ssat.org. Please submit all forms by January 31. Please also be sure to complete the Lawrenceville Supplement which becomes available through the SAO. The option to complete the Lawrenceville Supplement will occur when a candidate selects Lawrenceville (school code 4564). Please follow all directions for completing the SAO. Questions about submitting your online application can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you choose to send additional materials that are not required (additional personal recommendations/letters other than from your Math and English teachers, or Principal/Head of School, photographs, artwork, CD/DVDs or other media, or copies of awards/certificates), do not send them to the SSAT Processing Center. Submit these materials electronically in PDF format directly to The Lawrenceville School at email@example.com.
The School does not offer a formal ESL program; however, academic support is available for international students on a limited basis.
The application fee is $100 for students with a mailing address other than USA. Payment options include MasterCard and Visa.
We hope you find the above information helpful as you go through the admission process. Please contact us if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
