The HSPT is a standardized test administered to 8th graders that helps schools know where to place students academically when they enter high school. The HSPT takes approximately 3.5 hours to complete and an essay will be administered after the standardized portion of the test.

Annually, JPII offers two opportunities for students to take the HSPT on-site. The tests typically take place on Saturday mornings in early December and January.

The HSPT can be shared with any school that accepts the HSPT regardless of where it was proctored.

Sign-ups for the test will be available in early November of 2022.
