High School Placement Test (HSPT)
The HSPT is offered on Saturday, December 2, at 8 am.
We encourage you to click the link above to register for the test. Walk up registrations will be accepted the morning of the test.
The results for both tests will be sent out in early January.
If your son needs to take the test with accommodations due to an IEP or 504, please contact Mr. Burkhardt at email@example.com. He will send you the verification forms you will need to have your son’s current school sign off on. All students testing with accommodations will take the test on December 2.
Frequently Asked Questions
- Do I have to take the HSPT BEFORE I submit my application?
- No, there is not a proper order. You can take the test and submit the application in any order you choose. We encourage you to submit the application as soon as possible. This allows your current school time to complete their portion of the application.
- I am not fully decided on where I will attend high school, should I still submit the application and take the HSPT?
- Yes! Submitting the application and taking the test ensures that you are given full consideration for acceptance, academic scholarships, and tuition assistance.
- If I submit the application and take the HSPT, am I locked into tuition?
- No, you do not make any payments or deposits until March of your 8th grade year. This is after you receive your acceptance and go through the tuition assistance process if needed.
- I am waiting to submit the application until after I see how I scored on the HSPT.
- This is a bad idea. The results of the HSPT are not sent home until January. At that time your application would be considered late. There is no fee for the application. Therefore, we encourage you to submit the application before December 22, 2017 to ensure you are given full consideration for acceptance and financial aid if needed.
- What do I have to score on the HSPT to be accepted at De La Salle Collegiate?
- De La Salle Collegiate does not use the HSPT to determine acceptance. We use it place you into the right level of coursework and to determine academic scholarships.
- I did poorly on the HSPT, can I retake it?
- No, per the Archdiocese of Detroit students can only take the HSPT one time. If you did poorly on the test our Response To Intervention (RTI) Team will bring you into De La Salle Collegiate for additional testing to determine proper placement within the curriculum.
