Current 8th grade students should register for the Diocesan High School Placement Test (HSPT) through the Diocese of Wilmington and complete Saint Mark's online application. The HSPT is scheduled for the first weekend in December. Students taking the HSPT can use the online application free of charge. Students new to the area or applying late pay a $100 application fee to Saint Mark's High School. Transfer students also pay the online application fee of $100. Click here for the HSPT registration form to send to the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington.

The bottom portion of the Diocesan HSPT Registration Form will be used by Saint Mark's High School as your permission to release current school records from your son or daughter's school to Saint Mark's High School. We will automatically send a Recommendation Form to your son or daughter's current school along with your permission to release school records. It is not required for you to submit separate recommendation forms.

Extended Time: students requesting extended time on the HSPT should register for the Saturday test date only as there will be no extended time testing offered on Sunday. To request extended time please email the Director of Admission with a recent psycho-educational evaluation or other supporting documentation from a psychologist or qualified medical professional expressly defining the need for extended time. You can send requests to mevans@stmarkshs.net

The deadline for priority consideration for admission, scholarship consideration and need-based financial aid is December 21 for the following academic year. Late applications will be accepted, and considered based on availability once priority consideration is given to applications submitted on or before December 21.

Rising freshmen who have not taken the HSPT and transfer students must provide the following to complete the application:
Grades/transcripts for the previous three years
Standardized test scores for the previous three years (where available)
