The SPSV Admissions Season is open, and part of our process is the High School Placement Test or (HSPT).

The HSPT provides normative measures in the following cognitive and basic skills areas: verbal and cognitive skills and reading, mathematics, and language. A High School Placement Test (HSPT®) is required for all students applying to 9th and 10th grade. A completed application reserves a spot for the test date.

  • Students will learn a variety of proven strategies for standardized tests and techniques to improve focus and relaxation.
  • Participants will be introduced to standardized testing during this class and armed with the skills needed to succeed at the HSPT.
  • The first session is from 9:00 am to 10:30 am, then a 15-minute break and the second session is from 10:45 am to 12:15 pm.

Registration for this course is from October 10th through November 24th. Payments are made through the SPSV WEBSTORE. The cost of the course is $50. Students in 7th and 8th grade preferred.

Please contact for details about taking the actual HSPT with our school.

Why Complete a Prep Course?

For some students, this test may be their first exposure to standardized testing and may cause anxiety. St. Patrick-St. Vincent Catholic High School offers to help with a new online course that will build your student’s confidence and calm their nerves.

More about the HSPT:

The HSPT covers math and English only. There are five separately timed tests covering: reading, verbal skills, language, quantitative skills, and mathematics.
