High School & Middle School Practice Exams
We invite current fourth and seventh graders to register and take a practice Entrance Exam on Saturday, March 3, 2018.
These practice exams help students to familiarize themselves with question format, content, structure, and timing. All testers will receive a detailed profile of their performance on the exam by mail. Please note that practice test results are not used for applicant review or scholarship awards.
Practice High School Placement Test (Pre-HSPT)
Seventh graders are invited to register for the practice High School Placement Test (HSPT). The Pre-HSPT significantly raises a student’s comfort level with HSPT exam and helps her to identify areas for improvement in advance of the official exam in the fall. This exam is intended solely for practice purposes and is scored according to seventh grade norms.
