Applying to Archbishop Spalding


Schedule a Student Visit

We encourage students to arrange a Visit Day to Archbishop Spalding by completing the online request form. Visit days for 8th graders begin at the end of September and are available most school days through December 16


All applicants to grade 9 must sit for the Archdiocesan Admissions/Placement test (HSPT).  A make-up test will be offered on January 10, 2015.  The test will only be available at Mount de Sales Academy, Mount St. Joseph, Calvert Hall, and John Carroll.  Students must pre-register with the school where they plan to test.  Any accommodations must be pre-approved by the testing site.  Contact information for the closest sites:

Mount St. Joseph - 410 644-6218

Mount de Sales - 410 744-7498 ext. 126

Applicants in middle/elementary schools in the Archdiocese of Washington take the test in their current school and can indicate Archbishop Spalding on the answer sheet to receive a copy of the results. Students testing in the Archdiocese of Washington will be charged an extra fee to have results sent to a school (only one school will be permitted) in the Archdiocese of Baltimore.

  • Online Application for Admission

Records and Recommendations

Students have the option to schedule a personal meeting with an Admissions officer.
