Enrollment Exam

Eighth graders seeking admission into Marquette must take the High School Placement Test (HSPT). This is a standardized test that we use to assess baseline academic performance. Exam sections include verbal skills, cognitive skills, reading comprehension, math concepts, math problem solving, and language - grammar skills.

Due to the dramatically increasing interest in Marquette, we are anticipating a very large number of students testing on December 7th. Please register early to ensure your seat.
