SSAT Preparation Course

What Is The SSAT?
The Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT) is a standardized admissions test used by many unaffiliated independent schools, non-parochial Catholic schools, and boarding schools. The exam was designed as an aptitude test to measure a student's ability in core subject areas independent of a student's school record. It is administered on three levels: Elementary Level (grades 3-4), Middle Level (grades 5-7) and Upper Level (grades 8-11).

Who Should Take The SSAT?
Students interested in attending private boarding schools, or independent secondary schools in the U.S., will need to take the SSAT. Admission officers will use SSAT score to judge the current and potential ability of the students to handle their school curriculum.
