- Applicants to grades 6–12: SSAT. The SSAT website includes information, locations, and dates. Galloway's recipient code is 3346. For applicants to grades 10 and 11, Galloway will accept the PSAT, SAT, or ACT in lieu of the SSAT.
- Applicants to grades 6–12: SSAT Character Skills Snapshot. Galloway uses the Snapshot results to provide deeper insight into your child’s character skills and personality. It allows the admissions team to see where your child would grow and thrive in the Galloway community. For students who take the SSAT, there is no fee to take the Snapshot. Once you register for the SSAT, you will receive an email with instructions to take the assessment. As the Snapshot is self-administered online, students should complete the assessment with no assistance.
