SSAT Summer Fundamentals

  • Last Update August 19, 2021


The SSAT Summer Fundamentals course is a way to stay sharp in the summer and to begin preparing for the SSAT. This course is not meant to replace the full SSAT course, which will be offered beginning in September.

Class begins on Thursday, June 24th and will run for eight Thursdays in a row. We will hold class at 10 AM, unless I inform you otherwise. Admissions to the class is rolling, and I will hold an extra session or two for anyone who begins later.
