Upcoming Tests

January 20 PreACT Exam on January 20, 2018

7:30 a.m.

Phillips Academy is a Test Center for a variety of standardized tests on the dates listed below. To register for these exams go to the appropriate test website: Students register for the PSAT and AP exams through the Standardized Testing Office. 

Because test registration is a fluid process, specific test directions and locations are listed on our calendar about two weeks before each exam. 

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.


Smith Center is located at 212 Main Street, south of the Main street/Salem Street intersection, near mile marker 144.6. Turn into the parking lot at the intersection of Dwight Street and Main Street. Enter Smith Center under the glass raised walkway.

Morse Hall is located at 16 Salem Street just before the intersection with Highland Road. Turn into the Gelb Science Building parking lot off of Salem Street. Signs near the playground will direct you across the quad to Morse Hall.
