NEW – The Character Skills Snapshot

All Hyde School applicants are now able to take The Character Skills Snapshot from The Enrollment Management Association. For students who take the SSAT, there is no charge to take The Snapshot. Once you register for an SSAT, you will have access to The Snapshot.

Students who will not take the SSAT must contact Hyde’s admission office in order to gain access to The Snapshot. There is a $25 fee for non-SSAT test takers. Fee waivers are available for those in need. Please contact Wanda Smith at if you require a fee waiver.

We Use the Character Skills Snapshot
