Early Action Program
The Early Action program will offer prospective students the opportunity to attend an entrance exam preparation course during the summer of 2024, and at the conclusion of the course, they will be administered the Saint Joseph High School Entrance Exam.
The Early Action Program is open to current 7th grade students who will be applying for admission to the Class of 2028.
Prospective students will have the option of selecting one of two weeks to enroll in the program. The program will be held the weeks of July 8, July 15 and July 22, 2024. The program will run Monday through Thursday from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m, and on Friday, they will be administered the SJHS entrance exam from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
From Monday through Thursday, students will be taught by Saint Joseph High School faculty members where they will acquire greater expertise in verbal and mathematical skills. Students will have the opportunity to meet and to interact with their future Saint Joseph High School classmates.
The cost of this program is $150 which includes a student's formal application fee, the preparation course, and the SJHS entrance exam.
Since Saint Joseph High School is the first choice school for most applicants, this program will offer an applicant the opportunity to complete the admissions process during the summer where there are fewer distractions and the applicant can better prepare for his entrance exam.
Applicants who are offered admission through the Early Action Program, will no longer need to spend additional time and resources applying to their second or third choice schools. Please note that students will need to accept their admission offers by November 15 to secure their spot in the class. Students who earn scholarships through the Early Action Program must accept those scholarship offers by November 15. In order to accept an offer of admission and/or scholarship, students must be registered through FACTS. Registration information will be provided with the acceptance letters. Students who are not offered admission in the Early Action Program may be deferred to the Fall Admissions program.
There are a limited amount of spaces available in the Early Action Program. Once those spaces are filled, all additional applicants will be deferred to the Fall Admissions Program.
