Welcome, Future Spartan!
This is indeed an exciting year to be a Spartan. September brings the return of our students as well as the many new faces of the Class of 2020. It doesn't take long for the Spartans to get back into the swing of things and before long, our campus will be once again bustling with activity. During the first weeks of school, we hold an Activities Fair so that our newest students can learn about our many clubs, athletic teams and other organizations. Watching the enthusiasm of our older students as they describe their respective activities to the new students, it is impossible to not be reminded of the sense of community that lies at the heart of Immaculata. It isn't too difficult to imagine that by this time next year, those very same freshmen could very well be the ones describing their clubs and activities to the members of the Class of 2021!
As fall turns to winter, we look forward to watching Marching Band competitions, athletic teams' games and matches, and the many bustling activities of our Campus Ministry program.
No matter the time of year, there is always something going on at Immaculata. We invite you to explore, both here on our website and in person, all that Immaculata High School has to offer. If you are unfamiliar with our school, please call my office for a private tour and information session so that you can see for yourself how Immaculata High School stands out by standing for something more.
Our Spartan family is waiting to welcome you!

HSPT Prep Course
The High School Placement Test (HSPT) is an assessment used by many Catholic high schools throughout the country and a required part of the admissions process for high schools in the Diocese of Metuchen. The exam is approximately 2½ hours long and will be given to students applying to the Immaculata High School Class of 2022 on Saturday, November 4, 2017 (alternate date: Saturday, November 11, 2017). The format of the test is multiple choice; there is no essay. Students are tested on reading, sentence completion, verbal skills, spelling and vocabulary, and quantitative skills. Students can only take the HSPT one time so thorough preparation is critical.
