Entrance Exam & Test Dates

    All eighth graders applying for entry to ECHS must take the HSPT entrance exam (including home-schooled students). A student currently enrolled as a freshman in another high school, who is applying as a transfer student, also must take the HSPT exam. If a student has taken the HSPT exam at another high school, the parent/guardian may have the test results forwarded to East Catholic for consideration by contacting the school where the test was given. 

    A $25 non-refundable fee covers the cost of processing the exam. Pre-registration is not required but is encouraged.
