Marist Entrance Exam

Marist High School students, pictured pre-pandemic, benefit from hands-on, real world lessons in a Catholic, coed environment that readies them for college and career. Marist invites local eighth-grade students to begin their high school journey at the entrance exam on Dec. 5.

Marist High School, 4200 W. 115th St., will hold its entrance exam on Saturday, Dec. 5.

There will be an in-person and online testing option for students this year. Pre-registration for the exam runs from Nov. 13 until Dec. 1 and is highly encouraged.

There is a $25 test fee due at the time of registration or on test day; cash, checks or money orders to Marist High School are accepted.

Students testing at Marist will receive details about the exam the week of the test that will include arrival time, entrance location and more. When possible, students will be grouped with elementary school classmates.

Classroom capacity will be limited to allow for social distancing. All students coming to campus will need to wear a mask and bring a health assessment form provided during online registration.

Students should bring two No. 2 pencils and are asked not to bring a calculator.

Marist High School administers the HSPT Entrance Exam, and study guides for this exam may be purchased at local bookstores or found online.

Students testing online will receive detailed instructions two days prior to the test, including their ID number and password to log in to the exam. Access to high-speed internet is required to take the online exam. A device other than a phone should be used when taking the entrance exam. The student and parent should review the online instructions emailed to the family prior to test day.

Online testers will sign an integrity statement affirming the exam represents their own work without the use of any additional resources.

Celebrating 57 years of excellence, Marist High School is a Catholic, college-prep, coed institution committed to making Jesus known and loved while preparing students for higher education and life.
