The Catholic High Schools of Long Island will hold an entrance examination for prospective students on Saturday, Oct. 28, at 8:30 a.m. at each of the 10 high schools in the Diocese of Rockville Centre. The exam is the first step in the process to apply to these schools.
Open to current eighth grade students, the entrance exam is required for consideration to the following schools: Chaminade High School in Mineola, Holy Trinity Diocesan High School in Hicksville, Kellenberg Memorial High School in Uniondale, McGann-Mercy Diocesan High School in Riverhead, Our Lady of Mercy Academy in Syosset, Sacred Heart Academy in Hempstead, St. Anthony’s High School in South Huntington, St. Dominic College Preparatory High School in Oyster Bay, St. John the Baptist Diocesan High School in West Islip and St. Mary’s High School in Manhasset.
The exam provides objective data about students applying to Catholic high schools. It measures ability and achievement in reading, mathematics, and language. The schools use exam results to make decisions about applicants.
Registration must be completed by Wednesday, Oct. 4. Accommodations may be made for extended time and/or enlarged print; such applications must be submitted by Friday, Sept. 29. Beginning in late September, each school will hold weekend open house events staffed by administrators, faculty members, and students to describe school programs and answer questions.
