High School Placement Test

Incoming freshman interested in attending Roger Bacon High School or any Archdiocesan high school must take the High School Placement Test (HSPT).

The HSPT will be offered at Roger Bacon and across the Archdiocese on Saturday, November 23, 2024. The cost is $30.00 and it must be paid prior to the day of the test. Students should arrive at Roger Bacon by 8:00 A.M. The HSPT will begin at 8:30 AM, and the test will end around 12:00 P.M. A registration link will be added to this page when available. The deadline to register is November 20th, 2024.

Students may take the test at any Archdiocesan high school they are eligible to attend, and have the option of sending their results to up to three different schools. If you are taking the test at another school, please select to have those results sent to Roger Bacon.

The Admissions Office uses the results of the HSPT for admissions considerations, as well as course placement. We also utilize this information to help guide decisions on academic scholarships, as well as admission to the Freshman Honors Program.


For students requesting accommodations during the HSPT, accommodation records (IEP/ISP/504/Accommodation Plan) should be provided to Roger Bacon from your grade school along Archdiocese of Cincinnati High School Placement Test Accommodation Form. Roger Bacon will need to receive this information by Wednesday, November 13, 2024.
