    Nobody can tell you solely on the basis of SSAT. Nobody can even make an educated guess solely on the basis of SSAT. There is sooooooo much more that they consider.

    I do cross country and track, not amazing at either but I show lots of improvement. I did Science Olympiad for two years in middle school and made it to nationals both times. My current GPA is 3.9 and I'm taking four honors classes.

    I think (take my opinion with a grain of salt, I'm just an applicant) that you meet a baseline of academics and ecs.

    Really it comes down to your recs, essays, and interviews now. You needed to show the AOs that you're motivated and will make something of the opportunities they'd be providing you; you needed to show that you're personable and kind and will have a positive impact on the community. If you've succeeded at these things (which all applicants should, but you need it more than most), then I'd say you're a very competitive applicant.

    Is your GPA weighted or unweighted?

    Also, where is your community service? You're actually pretty screwed if you don't have ANY, I hope for your sake that you just forgot to write it here:(

    I cannot chance you, but I would like to congratulate you for earning an 800/99th% on the reading section of the SSAT. Also, a composite score of 94% is competitive for all boarding schools.

    I think that your math could definitely hurt you since it’s in the 62nd percentile but if your other ecs are good then there shouldn’t be much of a problem. Hopefully, your grades reflect a good math background.

    agreeing with @tacocat123, schools know that some people don't do well in certain subjects with standardized testing, and even if that isn't your case, it may work in your favor if they see it that way. if your math grades are good enough, they may assume this.
