    Prospective Student Events
    All prospective eighth grade students applying for entry to ECHS must take the HSPT entrance exam (including home school 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 obtain the results by contacting the school where the test was given and forward the results to East Catholic for consideration.

    A $25 non-refundable fee covers the cost of processing the exam. We do not require pre-registration, but we do encourage it.
