Applicants should be academically prepared, willing to perform dedicated and consistent academic work outside of class every day, and be receptive to the various religious formation programs which are essential to the school's total program. 

Fall/Winter Semester (August - December)
The Admissions year begins in the Fall Semester (August - December) with a variety of optional programs offered to interested applicants. A shadowing program (Bronco for a Day), as well as campus tours are available through the end of the semester. These programs are available to 8th grade students and their parents by appointment. Open Houses are held in October and November.

Winter/Spring Semester (January - May)
January starts with the pre-test and registration night. This is followed by the entrance exam (HSPT) in February. By late March, you will receive your letter on your acceptance and financial aid notification. The Bronco for a Day shadowing program and campus tours resume after spring break. A deposit completes the registration process. More detailed information about the entrance exam, important dates, Open House, tuition and financial aid is available in the Admissions drop down menu above. 

Admissions Policy

Admission to the freshman class at Montini Catholic is based primarily on the Placement Test, given at Montini Catholic High School, usually on the second Saturday in January. A high school pre-admission form with the student's seventh grade standardized test results and seventh and eighth grade report cards are also used to determine admission. Students must have graduated from eighth grade before beginning freshman year. 

Montini Catholic gives preferential acceptance to siblings of current and recent graduates, to children of active alumni, to students who are members of neighboring parishes, and to students who are Catholic. All prospective students must demonstrate an aptitude for the school's academic program. 

Transfer students from other accredited high schools are admitted on a the basis of their transcripts. Students must have sufficient credits and a minimum 2.5 grade point average on a 4.0 scale.  Montini Catholic does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, or national origin in admitting students.
