Scholarship Opportunities

8th-grade students can earn an Academic Merit Scholarship to Archbishop Carroll High School. This 4-year scholarship is awarded to students with outstanding academic records and high achievement on the HSPT Scholarship Exam.

If your child currently attends a Philadelphia Archdiocesan elementary school, please be aware that this year, each individual elementary school will be offering the test during the school day, and will allow students to pick which Archdiocesan high schools they want to receive their scores. The date of this is set for September 25, 2023. More information about this will be given at the elementary school level.

If your child DOES NOT attend a Philadelphia Archdiocesan elementary school, Carroll will offer a testing day at Carroll on Tuesday, October 10 from 4-7PM. Click here to register for this test.
