Admissions FAQs

BB&N requires all grades 6-11 applicants to take either the SSAT or the ISEE entrance exam. Testing should be completed during the current academic year and before the January 10 application deadline.

BB&N is fortunate to welcome students and families from all around the world who enrich our campuses with varied perspectives and traditions. Unfortunately, the school is not able to support F-1 student visas. Families relocating to the area with a different visa status that allows K-12 education are welcome to apply. BB&N is not a boarding school and thus we do not provide housing, residential arrangements, or allow homestay agreements.

Students walk, bike, drive, carpool, or take one of our buses! To learn more about our transportation options, please visit our dedicated transportation page.
