Taking the Placement Test

Each applicant for freshman admission must take the STS High School Placement Test as part of the application process. For your convenience, we offer this placement test on three Saturday mornings during the fall and one Saturday morning in January.

For rising eighth-grade students, we will offer the week-long High School Placement Test Academy over the summer. This provides the opportunity to take the HSPT twice with instruction from Cathedral educators to help improve your score.  Click here to register for the HSPT Academy the week of July 12.

For Parents: Coffee with Cathedral!

While students are taking the placement test on each Saturday date, we offer a gathering for parents/guardians called "Coffee with Cathedral" that is designed to share valuable information about academics, counseling, and more. This gathering and campus begins at 8:30 a.m. The Admissions Team will direct parents to this location on the morning of the placement test.
