HSPT Entrance Exam

The High School Placement Test (HSPT) Entrance Exam is for 8th Graders ONLY.

Any 8th grade applicant who wishes to be considered for 9th Grade admission to Xavier must take the standardized High School Placement Test (HSPT).

The HSPT was administered at Xavier in January.  The HSPT can now only be administered on an invidual basis and by appointment subject to the availablity of Admission Office Staff. 

An exam fee of $50 will be collected at the beginning of the exam. Cash or Check accepted; no credit cards. Please make check payable to Xavier College Preparatory.

*Out of state applicants: We often have applicants from out of state who know they will be relocating to the Phoenix area for high school. Students may take the HSPT in dioceses in other states and have the results forwarded to us. They can begin the online application in the same manner as local applicants. We can make arrangements for the writing sample to be done at a determined location. Please contact Paula Petrowski to make arrangements for out-of-state applications.
