Highest Average SSAT Score
Among "All-Boys Schools", view the boarding schools with the highest average SSAT score (2021-22).
The Secondary School Admission Test, or SSAT, is an admissions test administered to students in grades 5-11 to help determine placement into independent or private junior high and high schools.
Despite its similarities, the SSAT is not related to the SAT Reasoning test and is not administered by the College Board.
A school's average SSAT score is based on a relatively small sample of students from year to year (typically less than 100 students for a graduating class).
Average SSAT scores, then, can naturally fluctuate year to year while the quality of the overall program and strength of the student body remains consistent.
Schools in the list below are often separated by small statistical differences, which for all intents and purposes, are not meaningful in determining the overall strength of the student body between two schools.
A school's average SSAT score should not be interpreted as the minimum score needed to gain acceptance - a school's student body will have a wide range of students whose SSAT score falls above and below the school average.
McCallie School Photo - McCallie's academic programs go beyond merely mastering the necessary material. They excel at teaching students to think. McCallie does not teach courses or subjects; McCallie teaches boys.
Avon Old Farms School Photo - Because of the quality and experience of the faculty/staff and the careful organization of time set aside for personal instruction and guidance, we believe that a boy will find a superior academic program at Avon Old Farms.
Georgetown Preparatory School Photo - Boland Hall is the home to many of Prep's 110 resident students. Our campus is less than 5 miles from the Nation's Capital
