All applicants to the ninth grade are required to take the High School Placement Test (HSPT) which consists of five sections: verbal, quantitative, reading, math, and language. A timed writing sample is also part of the test, where students write about their desire to attend Gonzaga Prep. The exam allows us to determine the best classes for each student. Students only need to attend one session. Students should report to the Barbieri Student Center prior to test time. Same-day registration fee is $30. Please see the FAQs below for more information about the test.
Pre-registration for the Placement Exam has closed, but students are welcome to register on-site.
Friday test takers: please plan to arrive by 4:45 PM. Saturday test takers: please plan to arrive by 8:45 AM. The on-site registration is $30, cash or check only.
