  • Scholarship & Placement Test

    STVM requires that all incoming freshman applicants take a Placement Test at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School before applying for admission.
We administer the High School Placement Test (HSPT), which is a multiple-choice assessment in the areas of Mathematics, English, and Reading. This year’s test will also include a writing prompt.

STVM offers merit-based scholarships to incoming freshmen based on placement test performance. Students must take their test in October or November to qualify for this scholarship. The top 30 scorers receive a four-year renewable Irish Academic Scholarship.
