    Host: Are there admission test required to get in?

    Andrew Battaile: Usually yes. Your son or daughter will have to take some kind of standardized test. It might be the test given by the school itself and owned and made up by the school or it might be a test used by many schools such as the High School placement test which is used by Gonzaga. But you should expect that your child will have to take some kind of test before they are either admitted, denied or waitlisted at a school.
