Entrance Examination - Details

8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
*Reserve your spot on your online application to SI and submit by Nov. 15*
(Please bring two #2 pencils)

Note:  If an applicant is applying to multiple schools the applicant should take the HSPT at the high school that offers the earliest date, so all their potential high schools get the results in a timely manner for their process and timeline.  The Admissions Office needs to receive the HSPT scores no later than January 10, 2023 or the admissions process will be held up for that applicant.

Please be assured that SI will accommodate all requests from applicants to St. Ignatius College Preparatory for the Dec. 3, 2022 testing date at SI. The applicant indicates the exam location and date on the Entrance Exam Reservation Form included as part of the online application to St. Ignatius College Preparatory. Applicants choosing to take the exam at another Catholic High School (where they have submitted an application) are responsible for making a reservation with that high school.
