Sitting for the High School Placement Test (HSPT) in December of a student's eighth-grade year can be a nerve-wracking experience. Often times, students perform better if they have seen the format of the exam before they attempt to sit for the test.

Saint Mark's High School is going a step further to make HSPT Prep Classes available to seventh-grade students who want to get more than just a look at the HSPT before eighth-grade.

We offer students the opportunity to take a prep course at Saint Mark's prior to the practice test, as well as offer the 7th Grade Practice HSPT on our campus. Students may choose to take advantage of one or both of these opportunities.

7th Grade HSPT Prep Course


Prep Course - Tuesday, March 19, 2019, and Thursday, March 21, 2019, from 3:30 - 5:30 p.m.
Cost: $50 for the Prep Course

Registration is no longer available.

7th Grade HSPT Exam

When: Practice Test on Saturday, March 23, 2019, at 8:30 a.m.
