Kingswood Oxford recognizes the ever-changing landscape of our world right now and the effects COVID-19 has had on all of our daily lives presently and in the months ahead. With this in mind, we have made some updates to our application cycle for the 2020-2021 admission cycle for Fall 2021 enrollment. As an Admissions team and a School, we feel these updates for the coming year are rooted in ensuring fairness, access, and equity for our applicants and their families.
Kingswood Oxford will be test-optional for the 2020-2021 Admissions Season for Fall 2021 Enrollment.
What does this mean? Applicants may choose to submit standardized testing with their application, others may choose not to do so. Either scenario is acceptable and Kingswood Oxford will continue to perform a holistic review of the applicants’s entire application with or without testing submission. Standardized testing is only one piece in the overall application and in this unique time in our history, we recognize some applicants may have challenges to ensure an optimum testing environment. We feel we must allow for this flexibility in the coming year.
