Admissions Criteria

In general, an 8th grade applicant should have the following qualifications:

  • Should perform well above grade level on standardized tests taken in the seventh and eighth grade at his or her present school.

  • Should be progressing in academic subjects commensurate with ability.

  • Should receive a favorable recommendation from the principal, teacher, or counselor of the school the student now attends. (Note: This recommendation will be solicited by the Admissions Office.)

  • Should perform well enough on the entrance examination to indicate that he or she is capable of achievement in a rigorous college preparatory course of study.

  • The student and parents should be committed to the student's active participation in the religious and extracurricular activities of the community he or she seeks to join. This includes a genuine interest in after school activities, liturgies, retreats, and community service.
