St. George's School may offer some testing options to applicants, with further details to be communicated directly to the families when an application is received. Testing spaces will be limited, so we encourage families to submit applications as soon as possible if they wish to test on-site.

Students can register to take the test in person at an SSAT test center, online with the SSAT at home for residents of Canada or the USA, or take the test at any designated Prometric Test Centre. Please make sure to designate St. George's School as a score recipient.
