Virtual Events at
All Admissions events will be virtual for the Fall 2020 semester. All high schools in the San Francisco Archdiocese will be hosting virtual events rather than hosting visitors on their campuses. The health and safety of our visitors, their families and the SI community is our priority.
We have some fun and exciting virtual events planned for you!
The Entrance Exam (HSPT) will be taken remotely. The Scholastic Testing Service has been preparing the HSPT so it can be taken online.
Below you will find a brief summary of our Admissions events, along with dates and times.
More detailed information can be found by clicking on each of the events below.
We have been engaging our amazing SI community in planning these events since school (distance learning) began on August 31, so you get the optimum virtual experience!

"I have been very impressed by the way SI has handled distance learning. The school has continued to foster community and connection with the kids while keeping academic work at a high level. I am super impressed."
