  • Step 3 - Register for the SSAT and Complete the CSS

    All applicants must take the Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT). The last national test date that will meet our deadline is February 3, 2018. Marist School will receive the score directly from SSAT within one week of testing. Additional scores may be submitted in March, but the initial score should be received by Marist prior to the interview. Visit to register for the test and for additional information. Remember to send the results directly to Marist School by entering our school code, 4870, when registering. The SSAT will be given at Marist School on January 6, 2018.

    New this year, Marist School is adding the Character Skills Snapshot (CSS) as a component to 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.

You may contact us after February 7, 2018 if an item has still not been received by our office.
