    HSPT Ranking Explanation
    Loyola’s use of the HSPT ranking system differs from some of the other schools in the region. Loyola does not withhold from offering financial or merit-based aid because of where an applicant chooses to rank Loyola. However, the ranking does help us understand an applicant’s overall interest in Loyola and is a part of the overall read of an applicant's file.
  • Submit Records Request & Common Referral Form

    Families with applicants currently attending an Archdiocesan of Baltimore school will have their records automatically sent to Loyola upon registering for the HSPT exam. Applicants who are not currently attending an Archdiocesan of Baltimore school must submit Loyola’s Request for Records Form to their current school, authorizing the release of his transcripts and standardized test results. This form must be signed by the parent and should be submitted to the applicant’s current school principal or counselor. Records must be received by January 2, 2023. Applicants from an AIMS school may also use the AIMS Common Referral Form.
  • Apply for Aid (optional)
