Application Items

We seek both recommendations and standardized testing results to help us learn more about prospective students. 


We require three recommendation forms from a current:

  • English teacher
  • Math teacher
  • Principal/Counselor

Report cards/transcripts for the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 school years are required for all applicants.

Students applying to grade 12 and PG must provide all records from grade 9.


Standardized Testing

  • Students applying to grades 6-9 are asked to submit their most recent state testing. If taken and scores are available, the SSAT may be submitted instead.
  • Students applying to grades 10-12 and PGs are asked to submit their most recent SSAT, PSAT, ACT Aspire, SAT or ACT scores.
  • All international applicants whose first language is not English are asked to take the TOEFL/TOEFL Junior, IELTS or Duolingo English Test (DET) and provide SSM with official score reports. The DET is reliable and user-friendly, and students can take the test on any platform. Follow this link to access the DET.
  • International students with any questions about standardized tests should contact Andrew Garlinski ’98, Director of International Recruitment, at [email protected].
