St. Joseph's Prep offers a variety of Test Prep Programs for students in grades 6th-8th. Although these programs are not required, they are highly encouraged for students so they can be prepared for the 8th Grade Entrance Exam.
This program prepares 6th & 7th grade students (boys & girls) to begin taking high school entrance tests at Philadelphia-area Catholic and private schools. Modeled on the Test Prep Program for 8th graders in the Fall, this program is specifically designed to support primary school curriculum work, to broaden content in Math and English, and to use Latin and Greek for reading comprehension and critical analysis.
Sixth and seventh grade boys and girls may take a Practice Test in the Spring. The test administered is the H.S.P.T. (High School Placement Test) and the conditions will be the same as we offer in 8th Grade. Students who score in the top percentiles on the entrance exam practice test will be eligible for a scholarship to our Pre-7th & Pre-8th Prep U Summer Program.
