8th Grade Homeroom 

Welcome to 8th Grade! 

This is a very exciting year!  Please check this page for any information regarding 8th Grade Homeroom.

High School Placement Test (HSPT) – The Diocese of Wilmington will administer the HSPT at our diocesan and parish high schools (Padua Academy, Saint Elizabeth High School, Saint Mark's High School, Saint Thomas More Academy, Saints Peter & Paul High School) the first weekend in December.  Registration will open Monday, September 9.  The HSPT registration process must be completed online through Scholastic Testing Services, Inc., at  It is strongly recommended that every eighth grade student be encouraged to take the HSPT, even if the student states that a school selection, other than a parish or diocesan high school, has been made.  The HSPT results inform you about your school program regarding curriculum, instruction, and assessment. If your child did not bring home a hard copy of the High School Placement Test information, you can find an additional copy on my website under "forms".
