This course is designed to prepare rising 8th grade students for the High School Placement Test. Students will receive instruction from a credentialed teacher who tutors standardized tests at all levels. Students learn tips and techniques to help when taking the test. All eighth grade students applying to Saint Theodore Guerin High School are required to take a High School Placement Test. This test will help us validate a student’s readiness and proper placement into classes, as well as determine who is eligible to receive one of our scholarships.
A practice placement test will be given at the beginning of the HSPT Prep Course and a second one at the end of the week to gauge progress. Scores from the test at the end of the course will be eligible for scholarship qualification and may also be used for application to Guerin Catholic and may be accepted at other area schools accepting the STS test.
THERE IS A MAXIMUM OF 24 STUDENTS PER TIME PERIOD.
Two scholarships are available at Guerin Catholic. The Presidential Scholarship awards $2,500 a year renewable for four years which totals $10,000. The Presidential Scholarship is awarded to students scoring in the 98th or 99th percentile on the HSPT. The Academic Scholarship awards $1,500 a year renewable for four years with a total award of $6,000. The Academic Scholarship is awarded to those students scoring from the 95th through the 97th percentile on the HSPT.
