Admissions Test for Current 8th Graders

This year, Lake Catholic will be offering the High School Placement Test (HSPT) as our placement exam. The test is a little longer than two-and-a-half hours, offered in-person at Lake Catholic. The test must be taken by November 15 for academic scholarship consideration.

The test is available for current 8th graders only and must be completed prior to registering at Lake Catholic. Students who test at other schools may use that score for the admissions' requirement, but not scholarship consideration if received after November 15, 2024. Please submit test scores taken at another school to Jennifer Bretz to be used for class placement and registration at Lake Catholic.

The Admissions Test is required for 8th graders considering admission to Lake Catholic High School.
