The Diocese of Oakland will administer the High School Placement Test (HSPT) at each of the eight East Bay Catholic high schools in January 2024. There are two dates being offered across the diocese. Carondelet will be holding our HSPT on Saturday, January 20, 2024, from 8:30 - 11:30 AM. Some other diocesan schools will be proctoring the HSPT on January 6, 2024.

The High School Placement Test (HSPT) is required of all applicants. Applicants are only allowed to take the HSPT one time and must have an application on file for the school at which they choose to test. Parents will receive a copy of their student’s results via email directly from Scholastic Testing Service in March.

Parents: Please arrive no later than 8:15 AM in front of the Garaventa Center at Carondelet, where a guide will greet you and escort your student to their seat.

Students: Bring at least two #2 pencils to the test. Calculators are not allowed.

Registration will open in September.

Students who need to request extended time, please complete the optional Accommodation Request by Friday, December 8. This is in your application checklist on SchoolAdmin.
