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 sections of test preparation. The first two sections begin in September, and the third in October. All sections are three weeks in length. SSAT Prep classes are for 7th and 8th graders only. Students applying for Early Decision must take the October 19 SSAT test, therefore, they should take Section 1 or Section 2.
