Boston Latin Exam

For entrance to the 2022-2023 school year, the Boston Exam Schools will not be requiring students to take an additional admission exam.

The Boston Public School System has selected NWEA to design the test for the 2022 Exam (for entrance to the 2023-2024 school year). 

The new test will assess students’ grade-level reading and math, and will be aligned to Massachusetts learning standards. The test will reflect what students are studying in ELA and Math in Boston Public Schools (the MA Curriculum Frameworks standards). The test is untimed and there will be no essay. In terms of test preparation, tutoring companies have agreed that the best course of action is to prepare for ISEE-like content and strategy, while incorporating MCAS-based content that is closer to the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. Our tutors have outstanding credentials in preparing students for standardized tests, including the ISEE, SSAT, and MCAS. We will customize our instruction and curriculum to prepare students for the content and strategies necessary to excel on the exam.

Our Boston Latin Exam test prep program is customized to address each child’s individual strengths and weaknesses. Your tutor will develop a customized preparation plan to arm you with powerful and up-to-date strategies for all sections of the test.
The Boston Latin Exam is used as the entrance exam for three schools – Boston Latin Academy, Boston Latin School and the John D. O’Bryant School of Mathematics and Science. Students entering the 7th grade take the middle level of the test, and students entering in 9th grade take the upper level.
