Summer Scholarship Test (HSPT) Prep Courses

Summer HSPT Prep Courses

Archbishop Carroll High School, in partnership with Grace B. Opdyke Educational Services, is offering three opportunities for rising 8th grade students to prepare for the Carroll Scholarship Exam (HSPT) this Summer.  Two sections will be eight days each with 15 students per class, and one section will be four days with a class size capped at 28 students.  We strongly recommend registering in advance as space is limited and we have moved to a waiting list in past years.  Please contact the Admissions Office, 610-688-7610 x117, with any questions and to register.
