Bishop Kelley High School administers the HSPT (High School Placement Test) in order to determine the proper placement of incoming freshmen to Bishop Kelley. The HSPT provides measures in the major skill areas of Reading, Mathematics, Language, and Science, as well as verbal and quantitative cognitive skills. Since the test is standardized at the same time with a national population of entering high school students, the end results are directly comparable on a national level as well as a local level for all test areas.
