7th Grade Scholarship Test
Saturday, March 23, 2019
 

Pope John Paul II High School's Class of 2023 Seventh Grade Practice Scholarship Test is on Saturday, March 23, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. until noon.


The PJP 
Practice Scholarship Test is an optional test to prepare students for the Eighth Grade Scholarship Test; it is not a placement or entrance test. Students who receive the highest scores on the official PJP Scholarship Test in the fall will be invited back next year to interview for potential scholarship opportunities.

PJP offered the Class of 2022 a record $100,000 in academic scholarships as a result of the scholarship 
test.  Close to half a million dollars in scholarships, grants, and financial aid were awarded to PJP students for the 2018-2019 school year.


There is a $50 fee to take the 
Practice Scholarship Test, and the test format is the HSPT from the Scholastic Testing Service. Students are asked to bring two #2 pencils; calculators are not permitted.  Each student may bring a drink and a snack, and they are invited to dress comfortably. 

 

REGISTER HERE
to sign up for the 7th Grade Practice Scholarship Test!

PJP's code is Z6

If you have any questions about Pope John Paul II High School or any of the above events, please do not hesitate to reach out to Mrs. Sara Cooper, Director of Admissions and Retention.  I look forward to answering your questions about the high school selection and admissions process and getting to know your family better in the year to come!
