High School Placement Test (HSPT®) Prep Program
HSPT® evaluates the cognitive and basic skills of an incoming 8th grader aspiring to gain admission to the Catholic high schools. The cognitive skill set encompasses verbal and quantitative subsets, while, the basic skill set encompasses reading, math, and language (grammar) subsets. High schools use the HSPT® results as a reliable tool to evaluate the academic proficiency of an incoming first-year student and assign them to regular or honors programs.
Since 1998, our successful HSPT® preparation classes have helped hundreds of students improve their scores and gain admission into their dream schools. Saturday, December 7, 2019 is the HSPT® test date for admission to the next academic year (2020-2021). Current 8th graders who intend to go to a catholic high school must take this test on this day. Completing the 8th grade and getting the HSPT® score are the minimum eligibility requirements for a high school applicant for the school year 2020-2021. Over the years, hundreds of students have significantly improved their test scores and earned a place in honors classes. While we have multiple options, a typical HSPT® prep program runs for ten weeks.

How often HSPT® is administered?
HSPT® is a paper-based test and administered once a year at a set date by individual schools or school groups.
Can I use a calculator in the HSPT® test?
HSPT® evaluates basic math and computational skills. Where needed, you can easily solve the math problems faster using a piece of paper and pencil. Therefore, you may not use a calculator in the HSPT® tests.
Do I get extra time to complete the tests?
Several months in advance contact the school where you plan to take the test. The schools are empowered to decide the accommodation requests.
Is science and social studies included in the HSPT®?
The core segment does not separately test for science and social studies. Though there is an optional test for science and catholic religion. However, the optional tests are not included in calculating the composite score or national percentile ranking.
How is HSPT® scored?
HSPT® is a multiple-choice test. Each question carries equal value. There are no penalties for incorrect responses or missed questions. The number of total correct responses is converted to standard scaled scores that ranges from 200 to 800. The individual student’s standard scores lend to the generation of the national percentile ranking, where 1 is the lowest and 99 is the highest.
How many students take HSPT®?
In a typical year about 120,000 8th graders take this test throughout the US.
How many times can I take the HSPT®?
You can take this test only once midway through your 8th grade. Typically, South Florida high schools administer the HSPT® on the first Saturday of December. You may not be able to take it twice, though some schools, at their discretion, may administer a make-up test. Check with the school of your choice of the admission policies.
Is there a cutoff score for HSPT®?
HSPT® being a placement test, individual schools determine the acceptable score range for their incoming students. High schools use the HSPT® results as a reliable tool to evaluate the academic proficiency of an incoming first-year student and assign them to regular or honors programs.
