Freshman applicants to Saint Joseph Notre Dame may also be considered for one of several Presidential Scholarships offered each year.

Students who qualify for the Presidential Scholarship will be invited to apply in February.

Register for the High School Placement Test

All students must register for the High School Placement Test.  The HSPT results determine which classes students will be placed in for high school, and may place them in consideration for scholarships. 
You may take the test at any Diocesan high school where you have filed an application and have the option of sending your results to up to three different schools.

Take the High School Placement Test
