7th Grade Practice Exam

Saturday, April 20 | 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.

The High School Placement Test (HSPT) is a standardized high school exam that covers five areas: verbal, language, reading, math skills, and math aptitude.  The practice test that is administered in 7th grade is provided to help students prepare for CEC's Scholarship test that is administered in the Fall of 2024. The test takes approximately 3 hours and results will be available 6-8 weeks after the test is taken. The scores will be used in our Summer Test Prep Camp to help prepare for the HSPT exam taken in Fall of your child's 8th Grade year.

This exam will be used as a component in determining "Instant Decision Candidates."
