6th & 7th Graders

Salesian is committed to each student's success, and we start with preparing them for the high school admission process, which is the next step in their academic journey.

7th Grade Practice for the High School Placement Test

Saturday, May 8, 2021
Time: 8:30am - 12:00pm

We encourage all 7th Graders to practice taking the High School Placement Test (HSPT) at Salesian. The HSPT must be taken in order to apply for admission to the 9th Grade. The practice HSPT will help familiarize students with HSPT content and material. ​The test will last approximately three hours, and it will assess students' abilities in Verbal Skills, Quantitative Skills, Reading, Math and Language. 

Scholastic Testing Services will mail test score results directly to each student. After receiving your student's test scores from Scholastic Testing Service, if you would like assistance interpreting your student's performance please contact our Director of Admissions, Christina Karabinis at ckarabinis@salesian.com or 510-234-4433 ext. 1416.

Cost: $50.00 

A grab and go lunch will be provided.

Parents and Guardians are welcome to attend a socially distanced, outdoor reception with the Admissions team and Administrators at 8:30am. Masks are required.

Registration is now closed for this event. If you have any questions, please call or email the Admissions Office, Rebecca Mangle, rmangle@salesian.com or (510) 234-4433 ext. 1001.
