REGISTER NOW – Receipt of the Application for Admission and application fee serves as official registration for the High School Placement Test (HSPT®) at SBA.
For over fifty years, academic high schools nationwide have used Scholastic Testing Services High School Placement Test (HSPT®) to assist with admissions, scholarship selection, and curriculum placement. The HSPT® is a comprehensive placement test for eighth graders for placement in the ninth grade. It provides a maximum of information in only one morning's testing time.
All rising freshmen applying for admission to SBA must take the High School Placement Test (HSPT). HSPT scores help evaluate the applicant’s overall record and ensure the student is properly placed in traditional or Honors-level classes.
It is recommended that students take the HSPT at St. Benedict. Taking the test at St. Benedict is considered an indication of a strong desire to attend SBA. However, we gladly accept test results from other area schools.* Applicants who do not test at SBA will not be considered for academic scholarships and it will be the responsibility of the individual to forward a copy of the test results to the Office of Admissions.
* Scholastic Testing (STS) recommends that the HSPT® only be taken once by each student.
