Please note: The $40 registration fee for the exam is non-refundable. The HSPT may be taken only once during the admissions process.

CCHS will accept SSAT scores in addition to or in lieu of HSPT scores (use school code #2239).

In previous years, Central Catholic has offered a HSPT Prep Course on campus. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be hosting that course this year. To help you prepare, we have added some additional details on the exam format to this page, under "What You Need to Know," and we have also included "Tips & Suggestions" in that section.
