The SSAT test is required for all applicants as it is useful as a common assessment tool. However, in our admission process, we look more closely at the student’s day-to-day academic achievements in our efforts to evaluate their potential to grow, succeed, and contribute here at Berkshire.
Characteristics like curiosity, creativity, and perseverance, both inside and outside the classroom setting, are important to us, and we recognize that these traits are not easily represented in a standardized test. We are a strong, vibrant, and inclusive community, and we are looking for those applicants who are eager to take advantage of our unique learning environment and embrace all that makes our community even stronger. We encourage all high-achieving students to apply to Berkshire, regardless of their standardized testing profile.
