Entrance-Scholarship Exam

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: 

Saturday, September 28, 2024
9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. 


Sunday, October 20, 2024
9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. 


Note: There will also be a Parent Q&A session in the Marian Center Auditorium at approximately 9:00 a.m. 

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.


Submitting Scores from Other High Schools

If you are not able to join us for the Villa Maria Entrance-Scholarship exams, we do accept HSPT scores taken at other high schools. Prospective students submitting HSPT scores from other high schools are also eligible for consideration for an academic scholarship. 

We strongly encourage students to take the exam twice, once during our testing dates and at another area high school. The admissions committee will accept the highest HSPT score submitted; we do not super score exams. 

All HSPT scores must be shared with the admissions office by the application deadline of November 6th for scholarship consideration.

Please contact with any questions.
