Placement Tests
HSPT and Challenge Exams


The High School Placement Test (HSPT) is a standardized test used by all Catholic Schools. 

The 2024 HSPT will be in-person on the Jesuit Sacramento campus. Students will choose their test date during the application process. 

There is a $50 application fee which is due at the time of submission and confirms an applicant’s seat for the test.​

Challenge Tests

Challenge tests allow us to understand a student’s comprehension of a subject before permitting a jump to an accelerated or higher-level course. 

Once your son has been accepted to Jesuit, you may sign-up for one or more challenge tests through the registration process in Final Forms. Challenge tests are available for Math, World Languages, Science and English. Challenge tests will be offered the mornings of March 23 and April 13.

Students must be signed up in Final Forms to be eligible to take any of the following Challenge Tests:
