  • Entrance Exam (HSPT) & Merit Scholarship Exam

    The HSPT Entrance Exam is one of the requirements for admission to Immaculate Heart High School. Students must take the Entrance Exam (HSPT) at Immaculate Heart on Saturday, January 16, 2021 to be considered for merit scholarships and the Scholastic Achievement Certificate.

    • Merit scholarships, in the form of tuition reduction, will be awarded to select incoming ninth graders who qualify based on their scores on the Entrance Examination (HSPT).
    • Students who earn a composite score of 90 or above on the Entrance Examination (HSPT) will receive a Scholastic Achievement Certificate.
    • The HSPT will also determine placement in honors English, science, and social studies classes. Honors  and upper level placement tests in math and foreign language will be administered in May.
    • Upon receipt of your application and application fee, a place will be reserved for you at the Entrance Exam (HSPT) on Saturday, January 16, 2021 at no additional cost.
    In this unique year, applicants will have the ability to take the test virtually.  As a reminder, test scores alone do not determine admission decisions, but they are a valuable piece of the holistic review of a student’s application.  To maintain test security, the HSPT will be proctored via Google Meet and families will need to submit the HSPT acknowledgement form found at http://www.immaculateheart.org/HSPTacknowledgement.
    If you are not able to fulfill these requirements, are not planning to submit other scores to satisfy the entrance exam requirement or think for any reason that taking the HSPT at home will be challenging - distractions, internet quality, etc. - we can make arrangements for students to test on campus on Saturday, January 16.  Students may bring their own computer or we can provide a laptop or iPad.  You will need to notify the Admissions Office by Tuesday, January 12 by emailing Dr. MJ Bautista at mbautista@immaculateheart.org.

    Alternatively, students may take the ISEE (Testing Code: 571057) in lieu of the HSPT Entrance Exam - additional fees will apply from ERB. Please check www.erblearn.org/ISEE for testing sites and dates. Immaculate Heart must receive ISEE scores no later than January 31, 2021.

A Catholic, independent college preparatory school for girls in grades 6 through 12, Immaculate Heart has been located on a beautiful hillside property in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles since our founding by the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1906. We celebrate more than a century of nurturing the spiritual, intellectual, social and moral development of students as they distinguish themselves as women of great heart and right conscience.
