Choosing a high school is a huge step in every student’s educational career. Lexington Catholic High School will host an open house on Thursday November 7, 6 pm to 8 pm.

They will host the High School Placement Test on November 16.

The HSPT is a standardized, timed test required of every 8th grader applying to attend Lexington Catholic. It contains five sections that measure verbal ability, quantitative ability, reading comprehension, mathematics, and components of written language. The questions are designed to test students at their curriculum level.

This assessment tool is used by high schools for admissions, scholarship selection, and course placement. Each high school has its own guidelines for evaluating applicants for admission, including performance on the HSPT.

For more information or questions, contact Mindy Towles, VP Admissions & Enrollment (859) 277-7183 ext. 231.
