SSAT Private School admissions exam

When you need to make a strong case for admission to private school, take full advantage of the opportunity. The SSAT score is one of the most critical aspects of the private school admission process. It is offered eight times per year, though most students take the test in November, December, or January. Chyten recommends taking the SSAT once in the summer and then at least twice during the academic year before you submit your applications.

The SSAT is administered by the Secondary School Admission Test Board. It has a Middle Level, previously called the Lower Level, for 5th through 7th graders (applying for admission to grades 6–8), and an Upper Level for 8th through 11th graders. The SSAT Board recently introduced an Elementary Level, for 3rd and 4th grade students (applying for admission to grades 4 and 5).

Thousands of students have dramatically improved their SSAT scores using our proprietary methods and strategies. To accomplish this we recommend 24-36 hours of preparation for the SSAT exam. These private tutoring services provide customized solutions based on your individual strengths and challenges.

Jack applied to three schools—BB&N, Concord Academy, and Belmont Hill. Yesterday he learned he was admitted to the first two schools, and we are still awaiting word on Belmont Hill. As you can imagine, he is over the moon, and his success is due in no small part to the work that you both undertook together over the summer months. I would be absolutely remiss were I not to write to you to thank you for your dedication with Jack, as you provided him with not only the skills he needed for SSAT success, but also enthusiastic and constant support at a time when he still had a long road ahead of him with the SSAT in the fall, maintaining high grades, writing applications, and the like. It’s all to say that I wanted to offer you my warmest and most heartfelt thanks.
