What is the SSAT?

The SSAT is a standardized test that rising 4th through 12th grade students are required to take when seeking admission to many independent (private) schools and many of the nation’s boarding schools.

The SSAT measures verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, reading comprehension, and writing skills.

The SSAT can be taken on paper or online at a test center or in-office (Flex testing), or online at home.

The SSAT is administered on three levels:

Elementary - for students currently in grades 3-4 (applying to grades 4-5)

Middle - for students currently in grades 5-7 (applying to grades 6-8

Upper - for students currently in grades 8-11 (applying to grades 9-12)

The Access Test Prep Difference

James was amazing. He did SSAT prep with both of our sons (7th and 9th grade). They have both gotten into their first-choice school! James has been a blessing, and we are returning to work with him again for school help.

The Access Test Prep Difference

Things are going well. I think James is great and is really helping Drew learn the tricks and strategies. His practice test last weekend was excellent and gave him confidence for his first real SSAT next weekend.
