Testing Day Information:
Enter the campus through the St. Mary’s Admissions Center parking lot located just off of Commerce Rd. This is a separate entrance from the main campus entrance. Heading north on Commerce Rd., the Admissions Center will be on your left hand side just past the main campus entrance. Heading South on Commerce Rd., the entrance will be on your right before the main campus entrance. Look for the red sign at the entrance that says “testing center”. Once you pull into the Admissions Center drive, make an immediate right at the long parking lot there. The building you see on the left hand side is the CAC and is where the HSPT test will take place. Red “testing center” signs will be at the front of the entrance. Park in this lot and bring your child into the center.
