Entrance Exam

As part of the application process, Strake Jesuit requires that all applicants who are applying as incoming 9th or 10th graders take an entrance exam and submit their scores to the Admissions Office. Strake Jesuit offers and accepts both the Independent School Entrance Examination (ISEE) and the High School Placement Test (HSPT). Incoming 9th or 10th graders can take either the ISEE or HSPT to fulfill their entrance exam requirement. The choice is yours! Please see below for more details about each exam.

Please note that students are not required to take either entrance exam on the Strake Jesuit campus. If a student would prefer to take either the ISEE or HSPT elsewhere, the only requirement is that they take the exam and we receive their scores by the beginning of February.
