Test Prep

You can learn the format of the test HERE.
There are many different online study guides you can choose from. Here are two sites we recommend: Peterson’s HSPT Test Prep or Study Guide Zone.
If you would like to purchase a study guide you can find the HSPT material in the test prep section of most bookstores under the name “Catholic School Test”. (It will have other test prep in the same book, but as long as it has the HSPT on the cover, it will have two practice tests and study material).
