“The SSAT is critical to our work in the admission and financial aid offices. We have two merit scholarships tied to The SSAT, and our admission office appreciates the standardized data points The SSAT gives us when most of the other application data is student- or school-specific.”
“Benchmark testing allowed us to know the range of kids we already had in the building and gave us a better idea of the students we are capable of serving. This informed us in a way that made our admission gateway even more open - a surprise to those who were worried that an admission assessment would limit admission.”
— Nick Kent, Deputy Head of School, Jakarta Internacional School (Indonesia)
Eric Barber, director of enrollment management at Crossroads, believes The Character Skills Snapshot will help level that playing field. It will also help us “differentiate our admission process from the competitor schools, in that we really are showing that we care about the entire brain and the entire kid, because that's who we are as a school.”
The SSAT at Home will be offered every Saturday and one Sunday per month, beginning September 2020.
