Design Team Families Scholarship: Select families dedicated to supporting the development of the school through their commitment to the mission and involvement may be eligible for a special scholarship opportunity of $5000. Merit and need-based tuition assistance also available.  Email us at [email protected] for more information about scholarships.

HSPT

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 official test date has passed, but we will be offering make-up dates as needed.  Please email [email protected] to schedule.
