Incoming freshman to Cathedral Catholic High School experience the same tedious task every year of taking the High School Placement Test. Although some students may find the exam stressful and a defining moment for their high school lives, this sentiment is not the case. The HSPT provides information regarding students’ academic levels in order to place them in appropriate classes, not to sort out who is and who is not suitable to attend CCHS. The eighth-graders arrived Saturday at 7:00 a.m. to take the test, which lasted until approximately 11:30 a.m. While students completed the exam, parents enjoyed entertainment and informational activities designed to initiate them into the CCHS community. Ambassadors and ASB representatives then rewarded the class of 2022 with donuts, CCHS bags, and music after they completed the test. The day was long and filled with a flurry of activities and events for new CCHS families. One-on-one interviews for the eighth-graders will begin Jan. 30, and decision letters will be sent March 30 to everyone who took the HSPT and participated in an interview.
