The High School Placement Test (HSPT)


*The HSPT has been given for all entering students in the 2022-2023 school year. Additional students seeking admission will receive an individual assessment upon submission of their enrollment application.*

What is the HSPT?

The High School Placement Test is an in-person exam, scheduled over a 4-hour period. There are five sections, or sub-tests, that cover the following areas: reading, mathematics, verbal, quantitative, and language skills. 


The HSPT is a standard method that private schools, and particularly Catholic high schools, use to find students who submit scores that demonstrate a student will be well-positioned for a rigorous high school curriculum. St. Gerard Catholic School is a testing Site for this test.
