The SSAT and ISEE Private School Admissions Tests

SSAT stands for the Secondary School Admissions Test. The ISEE is the Independent School Entrance Examination. Both tests are used for admission to private middle schools and high schools. The tests focus on verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, reading comprehension, and mathematics achievement.


Which Test Should I Take?




The SSAT is much like the SAT, but for private high schools and middle schools. This exam also reviews math, ELA, and writing abilities.
