Choosing a Catholic High School

Today’s Catholic New York has a special section, beginning on page 15, describing the Catholic High Schools of the Archdiocese of New York, including thirteen high schools in The Bronx.  Please use this link and flip to page 15.

For a full explanation of the Test for Admission to Catholic High School, please go to
Registration must be done by October 15, 2018. The date of the examination is Friday, November 2, 2018. The registration fee is $63, as last year.

The Test for Admission to Catholic High Schools is accepting applicants now.  Parents are urged to look at this information site (link here)  and read each of the links in the left-hand column.  You may have to print out some of the forms and directions. It would appear that the thirteen Catholic high schools of The Bronx offer 2,295 places for incoming freshmen.
Please also note the dates of the Open House visitations and the Information Fairs.

For students and parents intent on Catholic high school admission, the important point is to GET MOVING, as instructed above.

The Bronx leads with 2,295 openings.
Queens, with 2,190 openings.
Manhattan, with 1,275 openings.
Staten Island, with 1,170.
