The Saint Mark's High School Placement Test (HSPT) is a required part of our admissions process for incoming freshmen. Taking the test at Saint Mark's guarantees the consideration for academic scholarships for current eighth grade students. In efforts to prepare eighth grade students for the Official 8th Grade HSPT, we host two sessions of HSPT Prep Courses prior to the exam.

Session I: October 1st, 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
