Application Deadlines and HSPT Date
Educational Services (ES) Program Deadline: November 3, 2017
Class of 2022 Application Deadline: November 17, 2017
High School Placement Test: November 18, 2017
The admissions committee examines completed applications, test scores, and academic records. The committee seeks applicants that show readiness for the rigorous college preparatory atmosphere at Saint Ursula Academy. High School Placement Test scores along with grade school records will be the primary criteria for selection. Legacy will be considered as a positive attribute only, meaning a lack of legacy will not hurt an applicant. In very specific situations, the committee may ask for a reference to address a specific area of question or the committee may contact the grade school principal to follow up on a specific issue.
Prospective students who are interested in the Educational Services (ES) Program must submit a separate application at the time of admission to Saint Ursula Academy. In order to guarantee a high quality of service, the ES Program maintains a small number of students in each class. Our ES Program Coordinator, Ms. Geri Walsh, along with the admissions committee, reviews each application for admissions to the ES Program
at the same time as the general application review.
In accordance with the Archdiocese calendar, the admissions committee will send decision letters on January 10, 2018. An acceptance letter will also include financial aid offers, notification of academic scholarship, and notification of conditional acceptance. Per the Archdiocese policy, no one from Saint Ursula will contact any accepted student until after January 16, 2018. However, an applicant may contact the Director of Admissions or Assistant Principal for Student Affairs to clarify questions or concerns at any time.
Registration for the Class of 2022 will be January 24, 2018. Families may register between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Should this date pose a conflict, please notify the Director of Admissions as soon as possible. All registration materials will be included in the acceptance packet.
After the enrollment date (January 24, 2018), a wait list for admission will be used if the class is filled. To be placed on the wait list, a student must be accepted for admission to Saint Ursula Academy. The student will be placed in the order in which the family notifies the school of their desire to be on the wait list. To be placed on the wait list, a student must:
- Apply for admission (application available on September 1)
- Forward grades from the 7th and 8th grade along with her most recent standardized test score
- Have High School Placement Test scores sent to Saint Ursula Academy
- Participate in a family meeting with the Admissions Committee
- Be accepted for admission to Saint Ursula Academy
