Placement Exam

Attention future Cougars: Exam Dates for the Class of 2022 have been finalized!

All students interested in applying to Lake Catholic High School for their freshmen year are required to take the Placement Exam. The exam administered is the High School Placement Test (HSPT).

For students applying to Lake Catholic for the 2018-2019 school year, we will be offering two Practice Placement Exams this summer in order to prepare you for the Placement Exam you will take in the fall of your 8th grade year.  The practice exams are not mandatory but we encourage you to attend at least one of these sessions.  Please note: the results of the practice exam will not determine eligibility for Aquinas Scholarships or Commitment to Excellence Awards, and they won't satisfy Lake Catholic's requirement to take the Class of 2022 Placement Exam during your 8th grade year.  See below to register for a Practice Placement Exam.

Students who will be 8th graders in the Fall of 2017 MUST take the Class of 2022 Placement Exam.  Students may only take the Placement Exam ONE TIME during their 8th grade year.  This exam, which is a component of admission to Lake Catholic, serves as a tool to place students in appropriate classes for their freshman year as well as determining academic eligibility for Aquinas Scholarships and Commitment to Excellence Awards.  See below to register for a Class of 2022 Placement Exam.

Aquinas Scholarship awards are based on the following Placement Exam results: 

99th percentile: $4,000 annual scholarship
95th percentile: $2,500 annual scholarship
90th percentile: $1,750 annual scholarship

Commitment to Excellence awards are based on the following Placement Exam results:

85th percentile: $1,000 annual scholarship
80th percentile: $500 annual scholarship

*More information regarding scholarships can be found HERE.

The Placement Exam fee is $20.00 due on the day of the test (payable by cash or check). Students should plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time and proceed directly to the check in table located just past the security desk in the main hallway. Parents are asked to attend a brief 20 minute parent information meeting at the start of each testing time. Topics of discussion include the admission process, tuition, financial aid, and an open question/answer period.
