Admission Policy

Admission Policy

Carondelet High School admits qualified young women of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.  The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of admission/educational policies, athletic, financial assistance, and other school-administered programs.

Admission Information

The Admissions Committee considers each ninth grade applicant based on the student’s desire to attend Carondelet; high school placement test; standardized testing in middle school grades; seventh and eighth grade report cards (academics, attendance, conduct, effort); school report by Principal or Designated official; language and mathematics placement recommendations; recommendation of pastor or religious education director (not required of Catholic school applicants who enrolled prior to 5th grade) and the school’s ability to provide a program of studies that will meet graduation requirements.

Although Carondelet’s curriculum is rigorously college prep, support services are available to students with special needs, including, but not limited to a Resource Specialist and Educational Tutor. Interviews, when deemed necessary, will be scheduled. After acceptance, a Catholic student may request a financial assistance application if financial need can be established. 

Priority consideration is given to applicants from Catholic schools, Catholics attending public school who are in parish religious education, applicants whose mother and/or sister(s) have attended Carondelet and Catholic applicants whose father and/or brother(s) have attended De La Salle.  Priority consideration does not guarantee acceptance.  The decision of the Admissions Committee is final.

A wait pool will be maintained for qualified students who cannot be accepted because of full enrollment.  Students who do not qualify will be so informed.

Please note: Carondelet High School does not accept any foreign exchange students. 

Tenth and eleventh grade applicants’ eligibility will be determined on the above criteria in addition to an interview, high school transcript, letters of recommendation and Carondelet’s ability to provide a program of studies that will meet graduation requirements.  Twelfth grade eligibility is limited to Catholic high school applicants who move into the area.

In the case of a former student re-applying, she and her parents must meet with the principal before beginning the re-admission process.

The school provides a rigorous education that incorporates all forms of critical thinking and inspires a life-long love of learning.
