TEST & APPLY. Register for the High School Placement Test and Complete an Application for Admission
Each student interested in applying to MND is required to take the High School Placement Test
(HSPT). Parents can register their eighth-grade daughter to take the HSPT at any all-girl or co-ed Cincinnati Archdiocesan high school, but we encourage her to take the test at MND. The HSPT is administered on Saturday, November 17, 2018. On the day of the test, if the student would like MND to consider her test results, it is important to mark Mount Notre Dame as a designated school. Good Luck! CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION.
