Application Process

Dear Future Jeanite and Parent/Guardian,

 

The Admissions Committee of St. Jean Baptiste High School, understands that this academic year and the previous semester provided circumstances that were and are unusual for families, teachers and more importantly, students. In an effort to maintain a consistent format of assessment, the Admissions Committee at St. Jean Baptiste High School requires that the 8th grade applicant seeking admission next Fall take the TACHS exam this November, 2020.

 

Registration is open now but will close October 23rd, 2020. Registering and taking the TACHS exam is the first step prospective students must take to be considered for admission into our Jeanite Community. Register today for the TACHS exam! Our School's TACHS code is 206!

 

Once the applicant selects SJB has one of her top choices, her results and her middle school scores will be sent in the form of an "Applicant Record." Each student's Applicant Record as well as her results on the TACHS exam will be reviewed with great care and attention. We ask that the applicant's teachers, guidance counselors, and principal partner with the Admissions Committee this season, in a more significant way than in previous years, by taking his/her time to complete the "Comments" portion of the Applicant Record with insightful comments that will help illuminate the student's strengths and areas for growth. The more information we know, the better we can determine if and how we can best support the applicant academically, spiritually, and emotionally.

 

Over the last several years, St. Jean Baptiste High School has experienced high demand during our enrollment and registration periods. Even now, during this unprecedented academic year, we are at capacity once again with a wait list for incoming 9th graders!

 

We are truly blessed to have dedicated and credentialed faculty members and administrators, engaged students and loyal parents, each of whom invests and believes in the future of talented young women. We look forward to growing our Jeanite community with you and your talented student.

 

This is the time to take a minute and register for one of our Virtual Open House dates. We can't wait to 'see' you!

Sincerely yours,

Ms. Lugo
