High School Placement Test (HSPT)

The HSPT is a placement test given to students entering high school. Incoming 9th graders must take the HSPT OR the ISEE and have their scores sent to St. John XXIII College Preparatory in order to be considered for admission.

  • The HSPT measures cognitive and basic skills. The exam consists of 5 sections – Verbal Skills, Quantitative Skills, Reading (Comprehensive and Vocabulary), Mathematics, and Language.
  • The exam fee is $55, or $75 for individual administration
  • Calculators are not allowed during the test
  • Check-in will begin at 8:00 a.m. and all students will begin the test by 8:30 a.m.
  • Plan for the exam to take approximately 3 - 3 1/2 hours
  • You are awarded points only for the questions that you answer correctly. No points will be deducted for wrong answers, so it is best to guess if you are not sure of the answer.
  • St. John XXIII School Code is 20
