Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT) scores are a required portion of the Derryfield application. There is not a standard test score that a student must attain in order to be considered for admission to Derryfield, though scores are useful as we generate the most complete picture of the student. A pamphlet enclosed in the Derryfield admission packet outlines how to sign up for the test. Alternatively, you may access www.ssat.org
for online registration. When you register, be sure to enter the Derryfield code, 2800, so that your scores will be reported directly to us.
Please note that The Derryfield School is a testing site in October, November, December, and January. You can register to take the test at Derryfield by accessing www.ssat.org
Applicants for the tenth, eleventh, or twelfth grades may submit PSAT or SAT scores in place of the SSAT. Students who may have taken the SAT through the Johns Hopkins Program Center For Talented Youth (CTY) are encouraged to submit their scores as a supplement to the SSAT scores.
