We have recently implemented a new admissions process and we look forward to working together! To register for the placement exam, you will first create a parent account. Once you are in our system, you can register for the placement exam. After the placement exam, a checklist will be generated and you’ll be prompted of required steps, such as downloading a transcript request form and electronically submitting a teacher recommendation form. This checklist is a great way to stay informed as you navigate through required steps and meet important admissions deadlines.
In the Archdiocese of Omaha, all Catholic high schools administer the High School Placement Test (HSPT) on the second Saturday in January. At Marian, the placement exam results are used to award academic scholarships and place each student in appropriate freshman courses. Last year we awarded nearly 40 academic scholarships to incoming freshmen.
