High School Admission Guidelines
High schools should consider the following factors when establishing their admissions policies and practices:
Parish high schools should normally give
preference to active members of the parish.
In cases where the number of
applicants exceeds the number of students a school can enroll, Catholic
students generally take precedence over non-Catholic students.
Each school shall establish an admissions
board that consists of some members of the administrative staff and other faculty members
who are competent to administer the admissions policy.
Each school shall make every
reasonable effort to assist students with financial need.
Schools should not admit students who owe money to another school.
Standardized test scores, grades, and recommendations from prior school shall be taken into consideration.
The age of a student at admission should be such that the student will be under 20 years of age at graduation.
Ordinarily, schools should accept
students from public schools only at normal transfer points at the
beginning of a semester.
