Williams also accepts the Middle School SSAT

4.   Submit your application.  You may do so online or print a PDF and mail a hard copy to the Williams Admissions Office.  Families should distribute the Request for Transcript Release, English and Math Recommendation forms (which are part of the application) to the child’s current school and teachers and ask that they submit to our Admissions Office as soon as possible.
