The High School Placement Test (HSPT®) is a mandatory placement test for all students wishing to gain admission to Bishop John J. Snyder High School for 9th grade. The results will be used to place students in math, science and English classes. We strongly encourage students who plan to attend Bishop John J. Snyder High School in the fall to take the test at our location.
The High School Placement Test is designed to assess content and skills in the areas of verbal, quantitative, reading, mathematics, language skills and science. It is a multiple choice test that takes approximately 3 hours. Calculators are not permitted to be used for the mathematics section. Additional information and practice questions can be found at the following websites: http://www.ststesting.com/hsptpg9.html and http://www.testpreppractice.net/HSPT/.
Note: Students interested in applying for the 9th grade who missed the placement test, may still complete an Online Application and an admissions interview. Acceptance to Bishop John J. Snyder High School is possible despite missing the test.
