Upper School Admissions
UPPER SCHOOL ADMISSIONS
Please see the steps below for the Upper School application process. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Chris Sanders, Associate Director of Upper School Admissions.
Schedule an interview through your Ravenna account. Your child’s entire file does not need to be complete before scheduling the interview.
Please register your child for the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) by clicking here. Parker's school code is 052843. Your child may take the ISEE at any ISEE approved testing site. In order to be given priority consideration, the last date that applicants may take the ISEE is February 1, 2021.
For applicants living outside of San Diego, the Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT) may be more readily available than the ISEE. Therefore, we also accept results from the SSAT. Parker’s school code for the SSAT is 3266. You may register for the SSAT by clicking here. In order to be given priority consideration, the last date that applicants may take the SSAT is February 1, 2021.
Please note that either test is acceptable and we do not have a preference for one test over the other. Students applying to the 10th, 11th, or 12th grades may submit either the ISEE, SSAT, PSAT, Pre-ACT, SAT or ACT.
For priority consideration, submit the following documents through Ravenna by February 1, 2021:
- Admissions Application Form
- Administrator, English Teacher and Mathematics Teacher Recommendations - after November 15, 2020
- Student Questionnaire
- Parent Questionnaire
Request that the registrar at your child’s school mail your child’s transcript (report cards (prior year and first marking period of the current year), immunization record, standardized testing) directly to Parker’s Admissions Office (6501 Linda Vista Road, San Diego, CA 92111) before February 1, 2021.
Character Skills Snapshot
EXPERIENCE UPPER SCHOOL
Parker is currently closed to the public. While we are actively planning to have current students return to on-campus learning this fall, we are uncertain if conditions will allow prospective families (for entry in fall 2021) to visit campus for admissions events. At this time, we plan to host online events, and we will update families of any changes here and via email.
Campus Parking Info
For visits to the Linda Vista campus, please park in the main entrance lot (located at Linda Vista Road and Alcala Knolls Drive). Once you reach the security tower, a guard will assist you in locating a parking spot near the administration building.
