Testing Overview

The Scholastic Testing Service administers the HSPT (High School Placement Test), which is a thorough placement test that 8th graders take to gain admission to Catholic high schools. This test covers a wide range of topics and is specifically designed for students seeking admission to these schools.

How to Register

Students in 8th grade register to take the test at the private school to which they are applying, generally called an admissions test.

Testing Dates

The best time to take the HSPT exam depends on the specific deadlines of the schools you're applying to. Typically, schools offer the exam in the fall or winter prior to enrollment. It's important to check with the schools for their specific requirements and deadlines.


The standard HSPT lasts just over 2½ hours

What's Covered on Exam

Note: The HSPT also includes an optional section called the Catholic Religion section, which consists of 20 multiple-choice questions. This section is only included at the request of the school administering the exam, and is not required for all students.The length of the Catholic Religion section may vary depending on the school administering the exam.


When taking the HSPT, the number of correct answers is used to calculate the score. Each correct answer is worth one point, and there are no penalties for incorrect answers or unanswered questions. The raw score is then converted into a scaled score, which ranges from 200 to 800 for each section. This takes into account the difficulty level of the test version. The scaled scores from the five sections (Verbal Skills, Quantitative Skills, Reading Comprehension, Mathematics, and Language) are added together to get the total score, which can range from 600 to 2400. This scoring process is an important aspect of the HSPT, and students should be aware of it when preparing for the test.
