Remember, it can be beneficial for your child to take the test multiple times. Read below about SSAT testing and scoring strategies:
Will the school I'm in automatically receive my test scores?
No. All score recipients, including your current school, must be selected as score recipients, either in the Score Recipient section of the registration form when you register for the test, or added later using your SSAT account.
Can I choose which individual section scores are reported to schools?
This is referred to as "super scoring" and students cannot do this on the SSAT. Ex: You cannot select a verbal score from one test and then a quantitative section from another test. You can send as many full score reports for each test to as many or as few schools as you wish. However, some schools will do this themselves. Contact the admission office at the school(s) to which you are applying to see if they will use the highest scoring sections from multiple tests.
Can I register for a test without listing any score recipients?
Yes. You do not have to list any score recipients when you register. You may designate recipients online at any time at no charge during the academic year using your SSAT account.
If I test multiple times during the year, which scores are reported?
SSAT will send official score reports for each test only to those schools you designate. If you are unsure about reporting your scores, it may be best to wait until after you have received them to designate the school recipients.

Is Your Child Going to Take the ACT or SAT
Test this Fall?
Plan for your child to take a standardized test at least twice to give them the best chance of a high score.
The next SAT will be on August 25th and then October 6th.
The next ACT will be September 8th and then October 27th.
Our tutors have been fully trained in the new content
and test-taking strategies of both the SAT and ACT tests. We focus on time-management and customize our instruction to meet the needs of each student.
If you are not sure whether your child should take the SAT or ACT, please see the article below.
SAT vs. ACT: Choose Wisely
