Placement Test

All 8th grade students applying to Guerin Catholic must sit for the High School Placement Test (HSPT). This test allows our Guidance Department additional insights into the students academic abilities to ensure proper placement into Freshman classes. This test also qualifies students for our Presidential and Academic Scholarships~

  • The Presidential Scholarship awards $2,500 a year renewable for four years which totals $10,000.  This scholarship is awarded to those students who score in the 98th and 99th national percentile on the HSPT.
  • The Academic Scholarship awards $1,500 a year renewable for four years with a total award of $6,000. This scholarship is awarded to those students scoring in the 95th-97th national percentile on the HSPT.

Students who took the HSPT during the summer prep course are not required to take the test again in the fall. The score from summer prep, will be entered into the applicants Admission Portfolio.

While students are taking the HSPT, parents are invited to stay for a brief Admissions Info Session in the Media Center.  We will discuss the application process, the role of our Guidance Department, student life opportunities and take a tour of our campus.
