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

Taking the High School Placement Test (HSPT) is a required step in the application process in order to be considered for admission to Brebeuf Jesuit.

The Brebeuf Jesuit Admissions Committee reviews a portfolio of application materials for every applicant, and the High School Placement Test (HSPT) score report is considered as a part of a holistic application review. To qualify for admission to Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School, applicants must earn a national percentile composite score of 60 or higher or a total CSQ score of 100 or higher.
