Key Facts



Arlington Catholic is proud to announce that we will offer the Pre-High School Placement Test to current 7th grade students.  This test will give 7th graders an actual test-taking experience for next fall’s HSPT.  The style of questions, length of test, and scoring will be similar to the test students will take in 8th grade for Catholic high school admission.

The test will take place at Arlington Catholic on Saturday, April 28th beginning at 8am.  The test should conclude by 11:30am.  Please note there are no extended time benefits on the Pre-HSPT.

Also, Arlington Catholic will offer an HSPT Prep Course as part of its inaugural Summer Session Program held throughout July.  These weeklong sessions will introduce test-taking strategies and exposure to the styles of questions found on the HSPT.
