High School Information

This is an important time for the 8th-grade parents and students as they look at everything the high schools have to offer.  Check out the high school websites for the testing and open house dates.  Students must take the high school tests for the Archdiocesan High Schools and all the private schools.  If you are interested in the Archdiocesan High Schools, please register your child for the test.  Click on the Admissions and Alumni links to learn about other scholarships that are available.
