All 9th grade applicants must register for the High School Placement Test (HSPT) administered by the Scholastic Testing Service (STS). Registration for the test is included within our online application. The HSPT is administered by all of the Catholic high schools in the Bay Area as well as some other independent schools. If the applicant would like to take the exam at SHP, please register within the online application. If the applicant chooses to take the exam at another school, please ensure the results are forwarded to Sacred Heart Prep as quickly as possible. Applications will not be reviewed without the results of the HSPT.
SHP will offer the HSPT on January 10, 2015. If the applicant takes the HSPT at Sacred Heart the test results will be mailed in the middle of February.
If the applicant takes the HSPT at SHP or one of the San Francisco Archdiocese Schools, the writing sample will be included. If the applicant tests at any other location SHP will contact the applicant to schedule a time to complete a writing sample at SHP.
If the applicant would like to request extended time on the High School Placement Test (HSPT), please complete the Extended Time Request form and email all documentation to the Admission Office by November 14, 2014.
This document must be submitted as electronic PDF file to firstname.lastname@example.org . Read the directions carefully on the form to be sure the form is submitted correctly.
