The Admission Decision Process

The Admission Committee is comprised of several administrators and faculty members. The Committee reads each completed application in its entirety. After thorough discussion, the Committee then reaches one of the following decisions: accept, deny, or wait list. The wait list is a grouping of students who may be qualified for admission, but to whom we cannot offer a place at this time. Students can elect to remain on the wait list or withdraw from consideration and enroll elsewhere. The wait list is not ranked in order of strength or preference. If a space becomes available, all wait list candidates applying to the appropriate grade are considered.

School of the Holy Child admits girls of any race, religion, and national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national and/or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, scholarship and financial aid, and athletic or other school-administered programs.
