High School Placement Test

Attention: All 8th Grade Students and Families

A Catholic high school education in the Diocese of Wilmington is a gift of faith and academic excellence for each student enrolled. In addition to an academic program of highest quality, teaching and learning are infused with the Catholic faith. In the classroom, through extracurricular activities, on the playing field, and through service to others, Catholic high schools develop young men and women who are faith filled, competent, and confident as they prepare for college and careers.

The Diocese of Wilmington will administer the High School Placement Test (HSPT) at diocesan and parish high schools (Padua Academy, Saint Elizabeth Upper School, Saint Mark’s High School, Saint Thomas More Academy, and Saints Peter & Paul High School) on Saturday-Sunday, December 1-2, 2018. The HSPT is an important step in the process of admission to a Catholic diocesan or parish high school. This test is used for admission, scholarship, and placement decisions.
