Admissions Testing

Applicants to Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten are required to take a developmental screening test administered at SSCA. Applicants for grades 1-5 are required to take an entrance test administered by SSCA. Tests are administered following successful completion of the application.

Students applying for grades 6-11 are required to take a Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT). You can contact SSAT to schedule a test, at 609-683-4440 (tel), 800-442-7728 (fax), or online at www.ssat.org.

Interview/Shadow Day

A personal interview with the applicant and parent(s) is required. In addition, all applicants from 1st grade through 11th grade are required to attend a Shadow Day, spending a full day visiting classes.

Notification

After the application file is completed and processed, SSCA will notify all prospective students as to their admission status. Applications will continue to be reviewed throughout the year until openings are filled. All subsequent applicants who are offered admission will be placed on a wait-list. Students will be drawn off the waiting list as openings become available.

Admitted Students

After notification of acceptance, the parent(s) of the student must sign and return the acceptance package within two weeks of notification. If the school does not receive this information by the deadline, the student's seat may be given to a student on the wait-list.
