Founded in 2011, Vericant is a widely trusted third-party in-person and remote interview service. Vericant supports international applicants who wish to stand out through a personal expression of their unique interests and exceptional experiences. Many well-respected high schools rely upon the Vericant Interview paired with Vericant’s proprietary Spoken English Evaluation score. In the United States of America, this metric is a widely accepted measure of communicative ability in a classroom setting. Accepting schools include Blair Academy, Episcopal High School, Middlesex School, Lawrenceville School, Peddie School, St. Mark’s School, Stevenson and Tabor Academy.

Vericant and Leo look forward to extending acceptance of the Vericant Interview amongst the independent schools in North America, while continuing to sustainably improve the experience of both applicants and high school admissions teams.
