The SSAT has set the gold standard for private school admission testing since 1957. Today, the SSAT is available in three testing modes—paper, Prometric, and SSAT at Home—with fee waivers and accommodations to make the assessment accessible to as many students as possible.
As a nonprofit organization, the Enrollment Management Association assists thousands of students annually through its fee waiver program, opening the doors to private school education. Please donate today to support deserving students on their enrollment journeys.
Students in grades 3–11 are assessed on their verbal, math, and reading skills. A non-scored writing sample is also included to assess writing ability. The SSAT concludes with an experimental section that isn't scored or reported but is essential to validating future questions. Learn more via the level links below.
