Testing for Grades K-4

Applicants for Lower School are required to take an assessment test.  Testing is done at the Lower School during the weekdays and takes approximately an hour to an hour and a half.  To schedule testing, please contact Elizabeth Spitzer, Associate Director of Admissions, at (615) 567-2018.  Please note, we are unable to hold a testing spot for your child without a signed application and $50 application fee.

Testing for Grades 5-12

Battle Ground Academy requires all applicants for Middle and Upper School to take the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE).  BGA administers the ISEE on our campus periodically.  If you are applying to BGA and would like to take the test on campus, please call us for an invitation code to register.  If you are taking the ISEE at another school, BGA's school code is 430700.   Please call Robin Goertz, Director of Admissions, at (615) 567-9014 for more details.
“From our first meeting, I could feel the sense of community in the hallways.  There is a healthy energy associated with enthusiasm for learning at BGA.  Children’s artwork adorned the walls and lots of smiles came our way from adults and kids." -- Lower School Parent
