SSAT Test

1. Overview

The SSAT test is a standardized test used by admission officers to assess the abilities of students seeking to enroll in an independent school in the United States. The SSAT test measures the basic verbal, math, and reading skills students need for successful performance in independent schools.

IIG Vietnam has proudly been an EMA’s official representative that can administer SSAT tests in Vietnam since 2020. The SSAT test is administered by the Enrollment Management Association (EMA), a nonprofit organization that provides professional support, advocacy, and smart, strategic enrollment tools to the enrollment offices of more than 1300 independent schools.
