An independent Preschool through Grade 12 school for gifted students.
Admissions

Apply to Roeper

The Roeper School seeks gifted candidates for admission to our school. We find that gifted students who are curious about learning, internally motivated, self-directed, and have a high ability to think abstractly are most successful in our school environment. Admission to our school is based on a review of many factors, including a gifted IQ test result, strong prior academic performance, positive teacher report, a successful visit to our school, and the student’s ability to give something back to our school community. All admissions decisions are made by a committee of Roeper staff members who seek gifted students who will be successful in the Roeper environment.

Stage II through Grade12: If you have a copy of an IQ test that was administered to your child within the past three years, it may be considered valid. If not, you will need to make an appointment for your child to take an individual IQ test, which is administered by a psychologist. You may have your child tested by one of the psychologists on our referral list above or by any other licensed psychologist of your choice at your expense. An appointment may be set up by calling one of them directly. Please send a copy of the tester’s full, detailed report, including all subtest scores and interpretation of those scores, to the Admissions Department. We prefer the WPPSI-IV or the WISC-V.
