Freshman Placement Exam & Test Prep Courses

Test Date: Saturday, February 13, 2021
8:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

In order to maintain a proper student to proctor ratio, we are requesting that all 8th graders that have an application on file at Santa Margarita Catholic High School, sign up to take the HSPT exam at our location.  This will ensure that we have enough proctors to keep our class sizes to no more than 15 students per classroom. 

To RSVP for the HSPT please email Mr. Ron Blanc at blancron@smhs.org

The $60 application fee is also required to be submitted prior to taking the placement test. To review your application status, click here. 

This is the same test that other Orange County Catholic schools administer, so students only need to test one time at one location, as we do share test scores among the other schools. If your student took the test at another location, or if you would like us to send your test scores to another school, please email Rhonda Ury at uryr@smhs.org.

If you have any questions, please call our Admissions Department at 949-766-6076.
