Admission Procedures

The following guidelines apply to any student wishing to enroll as a first year incoming student. 

  • 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
If you would like your daughter to be considered for admission, please contact Mrs. Sara Phillips McGann '96 at 773-881-6534 or email smcgann@mothermcauley.org.
