We’re here to guide you and your family through the application process.
For the 2024-25 school year, O’Dowd will consider the HSPT standardized test scores. For admission decisions, we will continue to take into account transcripts, portfolio submissions, and recommendations in addition to test scores.
If your student is applying to another Catholic school, please contact the school to which they are applying to understand their HSPT requirements.
