We care about your children and how they grow – not just their cognitive skills such as writing and math, but also growing into good citizens with integrity, resilience, and teamwork skills – those skills that carry them forward into a successful life.

Character and personal growth are an integral part of a Noble and Greenough education. Certainly a reason you’re seeking to enroll your child with us is because you’re interested in an environment that focuses on instilling character values as well as exceptional academics, unique life experiences, and outstanding opportunities.

While a child’s personality and character have always been important to our admission process, we haven’t had a tool that we could use to measure the character skills your child is developing. Grades and test scores just don’t tell us the whole story of your child. The Character Skills Snapshot gives us richer holistic information and illuminates areas where Nobles can help your child grow, thrive and shine. It’s a way for us to get to know your child better and an opportunity for us to explore the ways in which Nobles’ community can enrich and develop your child’s intellectual curiosity, teamwork, initiative, responsibility, resilience, self-control, open-mindedness and social awareness.

All upper school applicants to Noble and Greenough School are strongly recommended to take The Character Skills Snapshot. For students who take the SSAT, there is no charge to take The Snapshot. Once you register for an SSAT, you will have access to The Snapshot. For more information on The Snapshot click here.
