    Grades 4-10 applicants must take the SSAT at the location of their choice.
    To register for the SSAT please follow the steps below:

    The Character Skills Snapshot is a new tool designed and administered by the Enrollment Management Association that will allow schools to get a broader view of applicants. We encourage you to spend some time learning about Snapshot—what it measures, how it is administered, and what role the report may play in the admissions process.

    To make this as easy as possible for you, Scheck Hillel hosts the SSAT at various times throughout the year; ask us for the next testing date.
