Placement Exam for Current 8th Graders

This year, Lake Catholic will be offering the OLSAT 8 as our placement exam. The exam will be one hour long, offered in-person at Lake Catholic. The exam must be taken on any of the dates listed below for scholarship consideration, and sign-up is available through the Lake Catholic website. Scholarships will be awarded to top scorers.

The test is available for current 8th graders only. The test must be taken at Lake Catholic to be considered for scholarship & can only be taken one time.  Students who test at other schools may use that score for the admissions requirement, but not scholarship consideration.

Placement exams are required for 8th graders considering admission to Lake Catholic High School.


  • Wednesday, September 27 at 6p

For students needing accommodations, accommodation testing dates will be noted in the signup form! 504/IEP/Accommodation plans must be sent to Lake Catholic Admissions prior to testing.

Parents: There will be informational sessions regarding our school and the admissions process during your child’s exam here at school, which you are welcome to attend!

Cost of the exam: $20
