Villa Maria administers the High School Placement Test (HSPT) as our Entrance-Scholarship Exam
- We encourage 8th grade students to join us for Villa Maria’s Entrance-Scholarship Exam this fall.
8th grade students may take the exam on either of the two dates: September 23rd or October 15th.
- There will also be a Parent Q&A session in the Marian Center Auditorium at approximately
9:00 a.m. on both exam dates.
The HSPT is an important indication of future academic success at Villa Maria. For accepted students, the HSPT results will be used by our departments to inform placement. Results of the exam are mailed shortly after results are received.
If you are not able to join us for the Villa Maria Entrance-Scholarship exams, we do accept HSPT scores taken at other schools. Beginning Fall of 2023, prospective students submitting HSPT scores from another high school are also eligible for consideration of an academic scholarship.
HSPT scores from exams taken at a parochial/grade school may be submitted for admission only. Only HSPT scores from exams taken at Villa Maria OR another high school will be accepted for scholarship consideration.
The admissions committee will accept the highest HSPT score submitted; we do not super score exams. We continue to encourage students to take the test more than once, especially at high schools that students are actively considering.
