  • Grade 9 Admissions Test

    Saint John's utilizes the High School Placement Test (HSPT) to help guide decisions for initial 9th-grade level placement in addition to admission eligibility. This exam is required for students seeking 9th-grade admission in the fall of 2021. There is a $35 testing fee.
