OES requires the SSAT (Secondary School Admission Test) for all students applying to grades 6–12. If the SSAT is not offered in your area, we will accept the ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam). Students applying to grades 11–12 may submit PSAT scores.
Students may take the SSAT at any official SSAT location worldwide and have their scores released to the school(s) they designate. To designate OES as a score recipient, enter OES School Code 5572.
