High School Placement Test (HSPT)

The HSPT is a nationally-recognized private school entrance exam.
Bishop Feehan requires all 8th grade applicants to take the HSPT. Our admissions panel employs a holistic approach. Test scores are just one factor considered as part of a larger comprehensive application review process. In addition to test scores, students' application, academic record, personal essay, discipline history, and principal/counselor recommendation are all evaluated. 
We invite 7th grade students to take a practice HSPT exam at Bishop Feehan on either 12/2 or 12/9.
8th Grade Students: Please register HERE using your Ravenna profile.
7th Grade Students: Please register HERE at least 1 week prior to exam date.
