Entrance and Placement Test

All prospective students who wish to be considered for admittance into La Salle High School must take the 8th Grade Placement Test in the fall of their 8th grade year at La Salle or an alternative approved testing site.

For the 2020-2021 school year, the Placement Test will be given at all parochial high schools on Saturday, November 21, 2020 from 8:00am – 12:00pm.

The new Archdiocese of Cincinnati High School Entrance and Placement Test (ACHSEPT) will be administered for the first time in November 2020, in lieu of the former High School Placement Test (HSPT).  This test is published by Riverside Insights, and will offer cognitive and academic components along with programmatic evaluations.  It is fully aligned to the latest standards, and in particular the Archdiocese of Cincinnati's Grade Courses of Study.

Prospective students may test at any school where they are considering attending. A student’s testing location has no bearing on his admission for a particular school.

La Salle High School will accept walk-in registrations on the day of the test, however, pre-registration is preferred due to limited testing material.

To REGISTER to take the Entrance and Placement Test here at La Salle High School, please complete the online registration form below.
