Testing Accommodations

We are committed to ensuring that test takers with disabilities receive reasonable accommodations when taking the SSAT. We also offer the opportunity for Sunday testing to accommodate those who cannot test on Saturday due to religious observance.

Testing accommodations must be approved prior to test registration. At the time of registration, these accommodations must be applied to the test registration by checking the appropriate box.

Please note that it is the responsibility of a student's family to provide all equipment, materials, and personnel necessary to support approved accommodations. For more information, please refer to the Testing Accommodation Guide for Students, below.

A pilot of a computer-based SSAT will occur during the January and February Standards for 2019-2020. Any parent/guardian of a student with approved accommodations, wishing to learn more about this testing option, should e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots.
