The High School Placement Test (HSPT) is the standardized test used in the admission process by all of the Catholic high schools in Indianapolis.

Students must complete the High School Placement Test (HSPT) during the summer before or in their 8th grade year in order to be considered for admission to Brebeuf Jesuit.

Qualifying for Regular Admission

Prospective students must receive a composite score of 60 or above, or a score of 100 or better on the CSQ section of the test.

Early Admission

Early Admission is offered by Brebeuf Jesuit to current 8th grade students who apply by October 1. Students interested in Early Admission should take the HSPT test in June, July or at Brebeuf Jesuit on September 28. Students testing in October, who are interested in Early Admission, need to have all their admissions materials submitted by the October 1 deadline. Admission decisions will be sent out by the Thanksgiving holiday.

Please note: If you have taken the HSPT at another institution, please request your scores to be sent to Brebeuf Jesuit at
