HIGH SCHOOL PLACEMENT TEST
All incoming 9th grade applicants are required to take the High School Placement Test (HSPT) as part of the application process. The HSPT primarily serves as a tool for course placement.
Applicants must submit an application prior to registering for the HSPT. If you have not yet applied, click below to create an account and apply. If you have already applied, click below to log in to your account and register for the HSPT.
Looking for HSPT testing accommodations? Please visit our Learning and Academic Support page for more information about applying to our program.

If you plan to take the HSPT at an alternative location, please let us know and request that results be shared with JSerra.
