  • Step 5 - Register for the SSAT and Complete the CSS

    All applicants must take the Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT).

Additional scores may be submitted in March, but the initial score must be received by Marist prior to your child's February interview. 

    Additionally, Marist School requires the Character Skills Snapshot (CSS) as a component of our application. We know your child is much more than grades and test scores and you, as parents, are interested in an education that focuses on instilling character values and encouraging personal growth. The CSS will provide us richer, holistic information about your child and illuminate areas where our community can help them grow, thrive and shine as individuals. For more information and details about the CSS, please read Because Character Matters. How to Access the Character Skills Snapshot explains in detail the process for taking and submitting the CSS from your home computer.
