What is the SSAT?
The SSAT is the required admission test for many of the best independent schools in Atlanta. This test is one important step on your path to an independent school education. Your SSAT score is just one part of your complete application to an independent school, and while it is important, it is not the only criteria for admission.
The SSAT is designed for students in grades 3 through PG and is administered on three levels (Elementary, Middle, and Upper). There are two types of SSAT test administrations: the Standard administration, which is given on eight designated Saturdays during the academic year at test sites around the world, and the Flex administration, which is an individual or group test administered on any date other than the eight Standard dates.
