If you already have a student at Salpointe Catholic or are an alumnus/a of Salpointe, please use the “Already have an Account” option. Once you apply, an online checklist will be created for your student.
The entrance exam is of critical importance. The entrance exam score indicates students' readiness for Salpointe's rigorous curriculum. It also provides a standard to evaluate the diverse applicant pool of students from all over Southern Arizona. Additional consideration is given to previous standardized testing data, 7th and 8th grade transcripts, recommendations, legacy, Catholicity and family interviews. Find out more at our Policy on Admission of Students page.
The best preparation for success on the Entrance Exam (HSPT) is to work hard in middle school. Some students find it helpful to become familiar with the format of the exam. If you do want more information on the HSPT, practice tests, learning modules and additional links to other information, please CLICK HERE.
Students should get a good night's sleep and eat breakfast prior to taking the HSPT.
No, Salpointe does not offer athletic scholarships. Salpointe only offers academic merit scholarships for incoming freshmen and need-based financial aid for all students. Financial aid and scholarship awards are made with no consideration of student activity participation. The application for financial aid is separate from the application for admission, although the two application cycles overlap. Find out more at our Financial Aid page.
Salpointe offers a one-time $1000 Merit Scholarship to students who score exceptionally high on the entrance exam.
Salpointe strongly encourages families to pursue additional funding opportunities that may be available for your student through Arizona individual and corporate tax credits and other need‐based Student Tuition Organizations (STOs). Please refer to our Financial Aid page for more information.
Honors placement is largely determined by entrance exam scores. Salpointe also offers placement exams for those who seek to be placed in honors courses but did not initially test into them. English, math and foreign language placement tests are given each spring.
Salpointe maintains a dress code for all students. The dress code promotes a conducive learning environment, cultivates a serious approach to academics, relieves social pressure to keep up with current trends or styles and limits comparisons or competition among students. The dress code also supports the dignity of the individual based on character rather than on appearance. Students are expected to dress appropriately while on campus and during all school-sponsored activities. Find out more at our Student Life page.
Salpointe offers a wide range of programs, activities and services to meet the educational, social, spiritual and recreational needs of the Salpointe student. Co-curricular activities help prepare a student for a healthy and active life in high school and beyond. Find out more at our Clubs and Activities page.

Step-Up Day - December 1, 2023, 9:00 am to 2:00 pm
We invite all 8th-grade students who are interested in attending Salpointe Catholic, to join us for Step-Up Day. This yearly event offers a chance for 8th-graders to explore life as a Lancer by spending a day on our campus. During this time, prospective students will have the opportunity to try out a typical class schedule, enjoy a complimentary lunch, experience Lancer-style entertainment, and receive a free Lancer t-shirt. This is a great way for prospective students to see if Salpointe Catholic is right for them!
