The HSPT is the required admissions test for all Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. It measures high school preparedness, and is one element that we use to determine whether a student will be a good fit for our school community. Students applying to St. JPII STEM can either take it with us or ensure that their scores are transferred from another testing location. (Note: it is the family’s responsibility to send these scores.) We also open our testing facilities to families applying to other schools.

Our test date is January 27, 12pm-3:30pm. The test fee of $50 can be mailed to our school office at the address below, or paid on the day of the test.
