What Is the SSAT?

The SSAT is very similar to the ISEE; it’s an entrance exam used to get into private schools. The SSAT has two levels. The Middle Level is for students in grades 5, 6, and 7 – the Upper Level is for students in grades 8 or above.

The SSAT can be a challenging test, and Upper Level exams are over three hours long. The SSAT tests math skills, reading comprehension, and verbal reasoning; additionally, your essay is sent to prospective private schools as a sample of your writing.

Since you are timed in each section and lose ¼ point for each incorrect answer, we understand taking the SSAT can be stressful - that’s why Foundation Learning is here to help you build confidence and skills!

FAQ's

Have all your questions about SSAT tutoring answered here!

Do you help students retake the SSAT?

Yes, we help first-time test-takers and retakers ace the SSAT. The SSAT is offered eight times per year – we’re ready to help your child prepare for their next test date.


How can parents be involved in the SSAT tutoring program?

We welcome parent involvement and always strive to keep communication open between students, families, and tutors. Our progress tracker enables you to check your child’s progress, tutor comments, and next steps at any time. 

How do you pair my child with an SSAT tutor?

Our SSAT tutor matching process ensures students are paired with their best-fit tutor based on student/family preferences, goals, and needs. A lot of the information we need to make an informed decision comes from the intake form you complete at the beginning of our engagement. 

How do you sign up to take the SSAT?

You can register for the SSAT on the EMA SSAT website here.

What is the SSAT’s structure?

Excluding the experimental section (which doesn’t count toward your final score), there are four SSAT sections administered in random order. You have 25 minutes to answer all questions in each section:

  • Mathematics: 25 questions 
  • Mathematics (there are two sections): 25 questions 
  • Verbal Ability: 60 questions 
  • Reading Comprehension: 40 questions


How do you interpret SSAT score reports?

Students receive percentile scores in the following areas: 

  • Verbal
  • Quantitative/Math
  • Reading

You’ll also receive section scores for each of these areas; for the Middle Level, scaled section scores range between 440 and 710, and Upper Level scores range between 500 and 800.


Which SSAT tutoring plan should we pick?

The best plan for you and your child depends on the level of support they need, their availability, and other factors. If you’re unsure which program works best for you, our team is ready to help – set up a call with us today to learn more!


Should my child take the Middle Level or Upper Level SSAT?

Middle Level SSATs are for students in grades 5, 6, and 7. Upper Level tests are for students in grade 8 or above.
