Private / Prep School Exams
Open New Doors!
In addition to your academic record, many private and prep schools require an entrance exam to be taken as an admissions requirement. Therefore, it is important to distinguish yourself with a high test score. At ConnectPrep, we have instructors with intimate knowledge of these tests that will create a lesson plan specifically for you.
SSAT (Secondary School Admission Test)
The Secondary School Admission Test, or SSAT is for admission to highly selective private middle and high schools. This is a multiple-choice test administered to students grades 3 through 11. There are three levels of the SSAT. The Elementary level is designed for students in grades 3 and 4, the Middle level is designed for students in grades 5 through 7 and the Upper level is designed for students in grades 8 through 11.
ISEE (Independent School Entrance Examination)
The Independent School Entrance Examination is for admission to highly selective private middle and high schools. There are also three levels of the ISEE. The Lower Level is given to students in 4th or 5th grade who are seeking admission to 5th or 6th grade. The Middle Level is administered to students in 6th or 7th grade who are seeking admission to 7th or 8th grade. The Upper Level is administered to students in 8th through 11th grade who are seeking admission to 9th through 12th grade.
Overview of SSAT vs. ISEE
Our ConnectPrep Instructor had the challenging task of helping my daughter prepare for the ISEE with a limited amount of time. They exceeded all of our expectations as she was accepted into her top private school choice!
