We require that all candidates take the Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT) and submit their scores as part of their application.
The test has multiple parts, as follows:
- Mathematics: two sections, 30 minutes each with 25 questions each
- Reading Comprehension: 30 minutes with 30 synonym questions and 30 analogy questions
- Verbal: 40 minutes with 40 questions based on 7 reading passages
- Essay: 25 minutes
In order to help prepare students for their SSATs, we offer three different sessions of test preparation. The first begins in September, the second in October, and the third in November. All are three weeks in length. SSAT Prep classes are for 7th and 8th graders only. Session dates are listed below.
