The Gold Standard

Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT)

SSAT IconJosh Clark250


Without a reliable test of cognitive skills, it is impossible to compare applicants from a variety of diverse backgrounds.

The SSAT, created in 1957 to standardize the admission testing process, remains the premier admission test on the market. It has been proven exceptionally valid as an indicator of first-year student success in independent schools.

Quality test development requires a rigorous scientific approach, and our testing experts continually monitor the SSAT to ensure its relevancy and usefulness as a predictive admission tool.
