Each Caroline D. Bradley Scholarship applicant is required to submit a school-administered, nationally-normed standardized test results.
Due to the nationwide school disruptions caused by COVID-19, we ask applicants to submit the two most recent years of a school-administered, nationally-normed standardized test.
Students with no standardized testing record due to homeschooling or their school or program does not administer standardized testing are still eligible to apply for the Scholarship.
Applicants must be in the 9th stanine, 97th percentile or be marked as “exceeds” in in at least ONE qualifying subtest or total battery/composite on a standardized test for the past two years. Acceptable academic areas include keywords such as:
Mathematics, Mathematics Total, Quantitative Reasoning, Verbal, Verbal Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, Language, Language Total, English Language Arts, Total Battery or Total Composite
Standardized test score reports should be included in the application uploaded by the applicant.
Applicants for the Caroline D. Bradley Scholarship must take the SSAT test administered by the Enrollment Management Association. Applicants should register for the upper level test. When registering for the test applicants should list their grade as 8th grade in order to register for the upper level exam. Applicants should select to send their scores to the “Institute for Educational Advancement.” More information on how to register for the SSAT can be found at ssat.org. The last accepted testing date is April 3rd 2022.
Fee waivers for the SSAT are available to qualifying candidates. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
DUE to policy changes by the College Board and ACT students are no longer required to submit SAT or ACT scores.
