Saint Joseph Hill AcademyUnder the Direction of the Daughter of Divine Charity

Admissions

St. Joseph Hill Academy seeks young women interested in a values based education, willing to undertake the challenge of a college preparatory curriclum.  Students are admitted based on the results of the Test for Admission into Catholic High Schools (TACHS), the applicant’s 6th, 7th, and 8th grade record, and the short response on the Hill application. Hill considers all applicants regardless of religion, race, or national origin.

Transfer students are considered for admission based on available space, current high school record, and standardized test scores.  Students interested in transferring should contact the Office of Admissions at admissions@stjhill.org.

Incoming 9th Grader Application Process

Step 1:  Register to take the TACHS, the entrance exam for Catholic high schools. For more information on the exam and to register, visit http://www.tachsinfo.com.  If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, you must list Hill first.  Our code on the TACHS exam is 223.

Step 2:  Choose a pathway. St. Joseph Hill offers two separate pathways. We have the STEM pathway that emphasizes math, technology, science, engineering, and art. We also have the Humanities pathway that emphasizes language, literature, history, social sciences, and art. Familiarize yourself with each and decide which best suits your interests. You can learn about these programs at our Open House on October 29th. You can also visit our Academics page for more information.

Step 3:  Fill out an application. This is where you get to tell us about yourself, tell us which Academy you are interested in, and let us know if you wish to sit for our SCHOLARSHIP TEST. You can download the application from our sidebar. Applications will also be distributed at Open House.
