Test Prep and Testing

Step 3

Incoming Freshmen: Sign up for HSPT Prep Class (optional)

In order to prepare students for the HSPT, Saint Mary’s offers two Saturday preparation days to familiarize students with the test itself.  Students will take small portions of the test and review those sections in order to learn mathematics and English content, test taking techniques, and time management skills.  Each student will attend two sessions each Saturday, one for mathematics (2 hours) and one for language arts (2 hours) with a 15 minute break between the two sessions.  Though some essential content is repeated in both Saturday sessions, different content will be covered.  Students who take the classes will be better prepared to perform at the highest level on the test and to be placed in the appropriate courses upon enrollment to Saint Mary’s.

An informational email will be sent out with further details. Please contact Mary Pivonka at 602-251-2515 or mpivonka@smknights.org for additional information.
