Entrance Exams

Trinity requires that all freshmen applicants take the High School Entrance Exam (HSPT).  The test is divided into sections that cover Verbal, Quantitative, Reading, Mathematics, & Language skills.  The content is subject matter that eighth grade students would have already learned in school. For more information about the HSPT, click here.

There is a combined entrance exam and application fee of $50, which can be paid when completing your online application or when your child sits for the entrance exam.  The exam can be taken at any school, and scores sent to any high school within the Diocese of Bridgeport.  At the start of the test, students select up to three schools they wish to receive the results, so please ensure your child knows which schools should receive the scores.
