Pre-HSPT Entrance Exam for the Class of 2023
Saturday, May 5, 2018 ~ 9:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
The HSPT (High School Placement Test) is the test Mercy uses for acceptance and placement into our academic program. This practice exam gives students an opportunity to prepare for the HSPT by familiarizing them with the test content and structure as well as offering insight on their performance. Each student will receive a comprehensive scoring report providing feedback and identifying strengths and areas for improvement. Students who achieve 90th national percentile or higher are eligible for a tuition credit at Mercy for the 2019-2020 academic year pending acceptance in November 2018. Registration is required. The $10 testing fee is payable at the door.

Preparation for the test:
Students who feel the need to prepare for this test may consider using a study guide. The study guides are available from bookstores, online, or through local libraries. Use the HSPT portion of the study guide (not the COOP or TACHS). Mercy does not advocate for, or against, the use of study guides.
Students who take the test at Mercy High School in November, with complete applications to Mercy (includes online application, records from current school and completion of the Entrance Exam), are eligible for Academic Scholarships based on test results. Scholarship award recipients will be notified in December.
