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 will be given to students who will be in ninth grade for the 2018-2019 school year on March 3, 2018 in the Tierney Media Center. To preregister for the test, complete and return the High School Placement Test Registration form and the testing fee to the main office. Walk-ins will be tested only if there are seats available so preregistration is highly recommended.
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.
