  • Incoming kindergarten and first grade students will be given an assessment to evaluate their academic readiness. This will allow our team to consider acceptance and/or correct grade placement to provide for the most successful school experience possible at St. Mary on the Hill Catholic School.
  • We do not require placement testing for incoming students entering grades 2-8, who are coming from a traditional school environment, before acceptance into St. Mary on the Hill Catholic School. We will need the student's most recent report card and standardized test scores, if applicable, at the time the application is submitted. These documents may be uploaded with the application or sent by fax, e-mail, or mail. The documents can also be brought to the school. Acceptance will be based on these documents plus discussions with administration, teachers, and/or guidance counselors from the student's current school, if needed. If placement testing is deemed necessary, we will schedule it at that time. Placement testing for non-traditional students (e.g. homeschool students) may be required before acceptance is complete and will be scheduled as needed.
