Transcript & Discipline Form
All students for the 9th grade must submit our Transcript and Disciplinary Form. This form should be completed by the applicant's parent or guardian then given to the applicant's teacher, principal or guidance counselor. The school will complete the form and send it it directly to AWHS.
All students wishing to join the 9th grade class at Archbishop Williams are required to take the High School Placement Test. The HSPT will be offered at Archbishop Williams High School on three Saturdays - November 3rd and December 1st. To register, please click the button below.
To help prepare and familiarize students with the HSPT, Archbishop Williams offers an HSPT Prep Course. In this course, students will learn how these basic skills are tested on the HSPT. This course will also help students review the basic concepts, question types, and problem-solving techniques needed to improve scores. Practice tests will help students get used to the pace and timing of the tests. The course fee is $110, which includes a book. The courses will be held at Archbishop Williams.
