    Academic scholarship candidates are notified of their eligibility following the HSPT (Admissions/Placement Test).  Leadership and Music scholarship applications are due at the time of Application for Admission
  • Testing

    All applicants to grade 9 must sit for the HSPT  (Admissions Placement Test) in either the Archdiocese of Baltimore or Archdiocese of Washington.  Archbishop Spalding must be indicated as a school to receive results at the time of registration for the test.
