The SPSV admissions season is in full swing, and part of our process is the High School Placement Test or the HSPT.

The HSPT provides normative measures in the following cognitive and basic skills areas: verbal and cognitive skills as well as reading, mathematics, and language. A High School Placement Test (HSPT®) is a requirement for all students applying to 9th and 10th grade. The HSPT will be offered on our campus on Saturday, January 9, 2021. A completed application reserves a spot for the test date.
