At Walden, we guide 6th grade students through the process of identifying and applying to middle schools. Specifically, we:

  • Host an Introduction to the Application Process in Spring of the 5th grade year.
  • Conduct optional ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam) preparatory classes each summer and after school in the fall.
  • Meet with families individually in September and October to help guide the application process.
  • Host an Alumni Series where Walden alumni from different schools come back to Walden and talk about their experiences and what they learned from the matriculation process.
  • Conduct mock interviews in November, December, and January with 6th grade students.
  • Write letters of recommendation for each student specific to the applicant schools.
