  • Step 4: Take the HSPT at IWHS

    All students interested in attending a Catholic high school in the Archdiocese of San Antonio must take the High School Placement Test (HSPT). 
    The HSPT is typically on the second Saturday in December at IWHS. The fee is $20. Registration for HSPT is pending.

    Schedule for day of testing:
    • Check in begins at 8:30 a.m.
    • Test starts at 9 a.m.
    • Test ends at noon.
  • Step 5: Submit Recommendation Forms (Submitted through applicant portal)

    To assist us in evaluating each student’s potential for success, we require applicants to submit TWO Recommendation Forms, (1) English and (1) Math from their current  teachers. The Recommendation Forms can be accessed through the applicant portal checklist. Add the teachers email address and press send. IWHS will receive a confirmation once the teacher has submitted the form. The forms are confidential, therefore the applicant does not see what the teacher writes. Applicants are only able to see that the item on the checklist has been completed.
     
    *Please note that if you attend a Catholic Middle School in the San Antonio Archdiocese, the IWHS Enrollment Office will request the two Recommendation Forms directly from the School Administrators.
  • Step 6: Submit Copies of Standardized Test Scores

    Please submit copies of Standardized Test Scores.
  • Step 7: Visit IWHS

    While not required, we encourage all students to schedule a visit to Incarnate Word during one of our Shadow Dates or Open Houses.
