This year, O’Dowd will not consider standardized test scores (HSPT, ISEE, etc.) even if they are submitted. The decision this year is the result of health and safety concerns related to COVID. For admission decisions, we will continue to take into account transcripts, portfolio submissions, and recommendations.
If your student is applying to another Catholic school, please contact the school to which they are applying to understand their HSPT requirements.
7TH GRADE PRACTICE HSPT
7th-grade students, take a practice test to get familiar with the HSPT and assess your strengths and areas to improve. The practice text will be offered TBD. Lunch will be provided. Space is limited to 250 students. Registration will be available in spring.
Note: O’Dowd does not receive student scores. Scholastic Testing Services will mail test results directly to each student.
Parents, join us for coffee and an admissions information session while your student takes the practice. TBD.
8TH GRADE HSPT PREP WORKSHOP
O’Dowd partners with Classroom Matters to offer an online HSPT prep course. This workshop offers students an opportunity to learn more about the HSPT, and familiarize themselves with the format and focus of the test.
Cancelled for 2021-22 year.
