8th Grade: Class of 2007

Welcome 8th grade Parents and Students :
Fall is the time to apply to a Catholic high school! Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese offer students outstanding academics in preparation for college within learning environments that are faith-based and service-oriented.

Nearly 98 percent of Catholic high school graduates go on to college.

Timeline for Applying to a Catholic High School:

June - August:
Talk with family, friends and neighbors about schools they attend(ed). Visit high schools’ websites. (link listed below)

Fall/Winter (8th grade):
Early September: Request applications from high schools. Inquire about financial aid options. Schedule up to three shadow visits (to follow a high school student) with the schools.

Mid-September–Early October: Catholic school students attend Catholic high school presentations at elementary schools.
