Entrance Exam

Beginning with the 2017-2018 admission cycle, 8th grade applicants to Catholic secondary schools across the Diocese of Paterson and the Archdiocese of Newark will be required to take the High School Proficiency Test (HSPT). The HSPT replaces the COOP Exam, which was required in prior years. Applicants who are considering other high schools should verify each individual school's requirements as needed.
New for Summer 2017!
Test preparation classes are now offered over the summer for students preparing to apply to Diocesan schools. To learn more about this offering or for registration information, please visit our Summer at Mary Help page.
