Applying to Upper School (Grades 9–12)

Bancroft's Upper School (US) is a college-preparatory environment of academic challenge and support.  US students are encouraged to think critically, take risks, and cultivate habits of discipline and curiosity conducive to a lifetime of learning. In this community, based on respect and mutual caring, students lay the foundation for lives of moral consequence.

Students build confidence in their unique identities and talents as they explore the arts, develop athletic skills and team spirit, and enlarge their sense of community both locally and globally to deepen their social and moral awareness.

Students applying to Grades 9 through 12 are required to take either the Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT) or the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE).



The Admission Office is here to support and guide you through the entire application process. If you haven't done so already, please fill out the Inquiry Form or call us at 508-854-9227. We will send you an information packet, including specific details about the application process.



Upper School Visit Days give you a chance to sit in on classes, learn about our athletics, arts, and clubs, have lunch, tour the campus, and complete your interview.
