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 11, 2020 (snow make-up date: Saturday, January 18, 2020)

Saturday, February 8, 2020 (snow make-up date: Saturday, February 22, 2020)
