The Application Process

Welcome to East Catholic High School. Begin your East experience here!

Incoming Freshman

We look forward to meeting prospective students and families as they navigate the admissions process. We will be offering the East Catholic High School entrance exam on Saturday, October 22 and Saturday, November 5. The exam begins at 8:30 a.m. Please see our online entrance exam registration for more information.

Please note that the entrance exam being offered at East Catholic is not the HSPT. It is created by our faculty to best understand the placement needs of our students. Students who take the HSPT at other schools are still eligible for enrollment; however, to be considered for merit scholarship students must take the East Catholic entrance exam. Students who do not take the East Catholic entrance exam will need to take it pending acceptance before they can schedule classes.

Private tours are available by appointment only. Please contact Abby Diemar to register for yours today!

Please note, the first step in the admission process is completing a student file. The completed file includes the following:
