Students applying for grades 6, 7, or 8 must take the Otis-Lennon School Ability Test (OLSAT) at KO. This 45-minute test measures students’ critical thinking and reasoning skills. Students will need to detect similarities and differences, follow directions, establish sequences, solve arithmetic problems, complete analogies, and classify pictures and figures. The OLSAT is comprised of verbal and nonverbal questions for a maximum total score of 150; we do not have a minimum score requirement. Applicants must register online for the OLSAT
at Kingswood Oxford School. Out-of-state Middle School applicants who can not travel to KO may submit the Middle Level SSAT scores in lieu of the OLSAT.
