Grade 7 Opportunities
Spring Preview Day for Seventh Graders
Tuesday, May 14, 2024 and Thursday, May 16, 2024 | 8:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Boys in seventh grade are invited to participate in a day of special activities designed to give a taste of what St. Edward has to offer. Participants will see the campus, meet current students, and engage in project-based learning while interacting with faculty.
- Lunch will be provided.
- Students should wear casual clothing and athletic shoes.
Space is limited for this popular program.
Please note: This fun learning preview is different from our eighth-grade shadow visits, where students spend an entire school day attending real classes along with a current student.
Admission Practice Test for Seventh Graders — Pre-HSPT
Saturday, April 20, 2024 | 9 a.m.
Private schools all over the country use the High School Placement Test as part of their admission process for eighth-grade applicants. Taking a practice version of the HSPT can be very beneficial for seventh graders, as it helps them become familiar with the test’s format and the types of questions that are asked. This preparation can reduce test anxiety and improve performance on the real exam.
The Pre-HSPT is a standardized, multiple-choice exam that measures academic abilities in the following areas: verbal skills, quantitative skills, reading, mathematics, and language.
- Testing lasts approximately 3 hours.
- Calculators are not permitted.
- The Pre-HSPT fee is $20 and registration is required.
Throughout the year, St. Edward offers athletic and academic camps for boys and girls of all ages.
