Application Process

Dear Future Jeanite and Parent/Guardian,


The Admissions Committee of St. Jean Baptiste High School understands that the last academic year and the prior to it provided circumstances that were (and still 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 asked that the 8th grade applicant seeking admission next fall take the TACHS exam in November of 2023. When registering for the TACHS exam, please use an email that you check regularly as this email will be the source of all communication with the prospective/admitted student and family.


As we move forward in the admissions process, SJB will email students to apply for scholarships and other opportunities once the student places SJB as one of her top three choices on the TACHS exam. Please read about some of the opportunities we offer new students.


As you may know, the Jeanite community is truly blessed to have such dedicated and credentialed faculty members and administrators, as well as 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!



Sincerely yours,

Ms. Lugo
