The High School Placement Test (HSPT) is used throughout the United States as an admission exam primarily for Catholic high schools. Schools such as Brophy, Xavier, or Notre Dame Prep will require this test as part of the entrance application. Students may take the official version (referred to as the "Closed HSPT") only one time, in the eighth grade. Some schools use the results of that exam for admission. This test is very challenging and does require preparation.
