Make Your Mark with the SSAT®

Since 1957, the Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT) has set the gold standard for private school admission assessments.
We proudly provide three safe, convenient, and fair testing options for families, along with official study materials to help students achieve their best. The SSAT is also available with accommodations and fee waivers for qualified test takers.

Three Ways to Take the SSAT

Your student is now prepped, assessed, and focused on their dream schools. What’s next?

Your Child's SSAT Experience

Official SSAT Practice Materials and Study Guides

Your family has options for SSAT test prep, but only our official practice materials are created by the same organization that develops the SSAT. Start by logging into our portal and taking the free 30-minute online mini-test to identify areas for improvement. Then, dig in with an online subscription to our study materials and four full-length practice tests, or utilize the resources in our SSAT Guide Books.

SSAT Testing Accommodations

We are committed to ensuring that test takers with disabilities receive reasonable accommodations when taking the SSAT. Any student with an identified disabling condition or impairment that substantially limits their ability to perform a major life activity is eligible. Major life activities include, but are not limited to, seeing, hearing, speaking, reading, concentrating, thinking, communicating, and learning. Testing is also available on Sunday to accommodate those who cannot test on Saturday due to religious observance.

Fee Waiver Program

We believe all students deserve an opportunity to apply
to private schools, and we provide more than $2 million in fee waivers annually to make this possible. If your family is facing economic hardship, please request a fee waiver from a school admissions office to which you are applying. If the school approves your request, simply enter the fee waiver code provided on the SSAT registration payment page.

In addition to covering the testing fee for any digital
or paper-based SSAT, the waiver also applies to our online practice materials, Admission Academy, and the Character Skills Snapshot. Please note that these services are only available after you register for the SSAT using the fee waiver.
