The ISEE (Independent School Entrance Examination) is a national standardized test held at sites throughout the Houston area at an additional cost above the application fee. Parents are responsible for all registration and payment directly through the ISEE organization. For more information, call ISEE at 1-800-446-0320.

Frantic, last-minute "cramming" for the test is not helpful. Students should listen very carefully to the test administrator's instructions. They should keep in mind that no one is expected to answer every question correctly. Students in a lower grade taking the same test as students in a higher grade are expected to obtain fewer correct answers. Remember, a student’s test performance is compared only to the performance of students at his or her grade level.
Students should not spend too much time on any one question; it is better to move on to the next question as omitted questions can be returned to within a given test section if time permits. Students should also remember to select the best choice for each question and attempt to answer every question as there are no penalties for incorrect answers.
A student's ISEE Individual Student Report will not be sent to schools in cases where there is clear evidence of communication with other students during the test, using materials or objects not allowed in the testing room (including cell phones), testing irregularities such as working in a section of the test after time is called or before permission to do so is given, questions surrounding a student’s identity, or disruptive behavior of any kind.
Acceptance information will be emailed and hard copies mailed to students that have completed the application process, have been interviewed, and have been accepted into Lutheran South Academy for the 2018-2019 school year.
