International Applications

All prospective students who wish to receive the Viewbook, schedule an interview, receive invitations to events in their home area, and apply to The Lawrenceville School should first submit this Inquiry Form.


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.
