Poly Prep’s Test Optional Policy for the 23-24 Admissions Season

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we understand that a standardized testing requirement may present challenges for families. We have a significant number of students in Poly’s community who receive support from our school in the form of a laptop, home internet hotspot, or router. Equity is central to our identity and to ensure that our application process does not preclude students with similar challenges from getting a fair shot of admission into our school, we are officially test-optional this season. We support equally students who decide to submit standardized test results and those who do not.

There are plenty of things to worry about right now for students and their families. Applying to school should not be one of them.

Please check out the links below for more specific information about our application steps.
