Delone Catholic desires a smooth and strong transition from grade school to high school for every student. To help ensure incoming freshmen are placed in the courses where they can be most successful, we require each student to take the High School Placement Test (HSPT). The test covers English, science and math.
Testing will take place at Delone Catholic HS in the school cafeteria. Please enter through the gym entrance on the South Street side. Arrival time is 8:30-8:45 a.m. Testing begins at 9 a.m. and concludes at 1 p.m. Students are asked to bring #2 pencils and a pen. Cell phones need to powered off and put away during testing. Snacks and drinks will be available during the breaks. Students will be dismissed by 1:15 p.m.
The following two test dates are available:
Saturday, January 12, 2019 (snow make-up date: Saturday, January 26, 2019)
Saturday, February 9, 2019 (snow make-up date: Saturday, February 16, 2019)
ALGEBRA II/ TRIGONOMETRY PLACEMENT TEST
Any incoming freshman student who is currently taking an 8th grade Algebra class with an average of 87 percent or higher is invited to take the Algebra II Trigonometry placement test. If the student passes the test with at least a 75 percent, he/she will be eligible to take Algebra II Trigonometry as a freshman when enrolling at Delone Catholic High School. The Algebra II Trigonometry placement test will be given at Delone Catholic High School in the spring. Each year's testing date will be shared on the Admissions Calendar and in the Squire Wire as it is determined.
Any questions should be sent to Candy Sneeringer, Delone Catholic High School Mathematics Department Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org .
