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. The top 30 scorers receive a four-year renewable Irish Academic Scholarship. These scholarships are based on outstanding leadership, academics, character, and integrity.
St. Vincent-St. Mary is launching an innovative new platform for prospective families to sign up for events, submit application materials, and access important information with ease. Until our new system goes live, families are invited to reserve Admissions event dates on our website. Please complete the form below to reserve your place at an upcoming Scholarship/Placement Test!
