COVID-19 Update

Dear Prospective students, parents and school partners,

We hope that you are safe and healthy during this uncertain time. We look ahead to next year’s admissions cycle with hope for a return to campus and the opportunity to share the Saint Ignatius experience with our future students in person. 

Saint Ignatius High School has a holistic admissions review process within a range of application components that are reviewed collectively and comprehensively. We understand that school closures in the light of COVID-19 have brought major adjustments to the delivery of instruction and implementation of assessments. Please be assured an understanding of these modifications and circumstances will inform next year’s admissions process.

We are aware that our prospective families are looking ahead to their son’s high school decision within the new context of COVID-19. Although we are optimistic and hopeful that we will be able to host our annual admissions events in-person, we are in the process of assessing our ability to host events such as the Fall Open House and our Admissions Tests digitally. We will be in communication with our prospective families as updates are made. In the meantime, we invite you to virtually visit our campus from the comfort of your own home.

We invite you to learn about the ways in which the mission of Saint Ignatius High School has continued amid the COVID-19 crisis by reading What Is Essential, the cover story of the Spring 2020 issue of the Saint Ignatius Magazine. As we look ahead to brighter days, we know God will continue to bless our school with talented young men and families who are dedicated to partnering well with us as we live out our mission.

  • Diocesan School Applicants

    Prospective students who attend diocesan schools will receive applications in mid-January from their grade school. The application deadline will be at the end of the same week in which the applications are distributed. Upon submission of the Diocesan application, records will be sent to the applicant's "first-choice" school.

  • Non-Diocesan School Applicants

    Prospective students who do not attend Diocesan schools will receive non-Diocesan application forms when they take our admissions test. These forms must be submitted to our office by February 1. The application will become official upon the receipt of the non-Diocesan application form and transcripts, in addition to other required forms.

  • Decision Letters

    The admissions committee is made up of 10-12 members of the administration and faculty. In early February, the committee will consider all of these applications at the same time and will select our incoming class based on the philosophies set by the school's Board of Regents. All decision letters will be mailed on February 15.
