Your roadmap to mcauley!


Here's a few things to make sure you complete in order to enroll at McAuley.

  • An 8th grade student should take the High School Placement Test (HSPT) Exam given at Mother McAuley in December, prior to her elementary school graduation.
  • Acceptance is based on the results of the placement test, availability of places in our programs, pre-admission information provided by the elementary school and payment of the required Freshman fee.
  • Consideration is given to Catholic students and students whose sister(s) currently attend or have attended McAuley, or whose mother was a graduate.
  • Students who test at Mother McAuley are given priority. If a student is not placed in the initial selection process, she will be placed on a waiting list according to the academic group for which she qualifies. If an opening develops, the administration will contact the parents.
  • Students must have successfully graduated from elementary school and have met elementary school financial commitments. 

To enroll as a transfer student, we require the following:

  • The student must have a minimum 3.0 G.P.A.
  • The student must have satisfactory attendance and discipline records
  • The student must demonstate the capability to successfully complete our academic program
