Standby testers:The Testing Boards have changed their security procedures and no longer allow walk-in testing. You must go to the testing websites to sign up for wait-list testing. You must have an Admission Ticket in order to test (except PSAT and AP testing).

Special Accommodations: Our test center can generally accommodate test takers with special accommodations. These tests are generally given in a separate location, usually Morse Hall. We are NOT permitted to take students with special accommodations on a standby basis. Students must apply for and be granted accommodations by the respective testing boards.

Inclement Weather: Phillips Academy is a boarding school and rarely closes due to inclement weather. If conditions make it unsafe to conduct a test, we will post a voicemail on 978.749.4376 by 6:30 a.m. on the morning of the test.

PA played a role in developing such educational innovations as the AP program, the SSAT, the School Year Abroad program, and Outward Bound.
