Admissions Process

Testing


It’s Not All About the Numbers

UCDS uses standardized test results as one component for building an overall picture of your child as a learner. When combined with the other application materials, the testing information helps us better understand each child’s unique learning style. Admissions at UCDS are not determined by a test-score threshold.

Testing Requirements and Resources

Testing is only required for kindergarten through fifth grade applicants. Eligibility for kindergarten is determined by the UCDS birth date policy. An applicant must be five years old by June 1st, 2019 to apply for kindergarten.

For children under age 6 use: WPPSI-IV
For children age 6 and over use: WISC-V

If the cost of testing is a financial hardship for your family, please contact our CFO, Stephanie Cisakowski or call 206-547-8237. UCDS has partnerships with several local psychologists who offer a sliding scale fee for IQ testing based on household income and family size.

Suggested Psychologists

You are free to consult with a tester who is not on this list, but please check to make sure they meet the testing requirements prior to administering the test. Psychologists’ schedules fill quickly, therefore we recommend you schedule testing as soon as possible. Testing results should be submitted to UCDS by the psychologist via email or post mail.
