SSAT Information: All 9th grade applicants must take the Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT), and send scores to St. Pius X. Applicants may register online at www.ssat.org. The school code for St. Pius is 6913. The SSAT testing dates are as follows:

October 14, 2017

November 11, 2017

January 6, 2018

February 3, 2018 (absolute last date accepted)

Character Skills Snapshot information (CSS): Character and personal growth are an integral part of the St. Pius X education. Therefore, this year we are asking each family to consider having your child take the Character Skills Snapshot (CSS) test. While other private schools in the area are making this 20 minute test mandatory, we are making it optional for 2017-2018 admissions. While the test results will not go into whether or not the applicants get accepted, the results will give us richer holistic information about your child, and show us areas where our community can help them grow, thrive, and shine. There is no charge to take the CSS. Once you register for the SSAT, you will have access to the CSS.
