Admissions Testing
Admissions Testing is a required step in the Lutheran West Admissions process. 

The Admissions Test is designed to gain insight into the academic background of prospective students so that we will able to tailor each accepted student's academic path at Lutheran West. Each student must attend a testing session in order for his or her application to be considered complete. 

Advanced registration to take the High School Placement Test (HSPT) and the Middle School Placement Test (MSPT) is strongly encouraged. Students who walk in the day of the test may be turned away if the testing site is already at capacity. The testing fee is $20 and is due on the day of the exam (cash or check only.)

Pencils and paper will be available for students to use for any figuring they need to do. Students are welcome to bring a personal water bottle for use during the test. Phones and calculators are not permitted.

Online registration closes for each session at 11:59 PM the day before each test session.
