As we continue to weigh the full impact of COVID-19 on the admission experience, St. John's has decided to remain standardized testing optional for any domestic student applying for the 2022-2023 academic year. We understand that the pandemic has resulted in many inequities that could impact a student's willingness or ability to sit for an entrance exam. We hope that by providing your family with this flexibility, you can take the time you need to consider your options and decide what is best for your son.
