Entrance Exam Prep Course

Gain the competitive edge!

The St. Joe's Entrance Exam Prep Course is open to boys planning to apply to Catholic High Schools.
Held at St. Joe's on Saturday mornings from 8:30 a.m. to noon, the 2022 course will take place on the four weekends leading up to the Entrance Exam:
  • October 22
  • October 29
  • November 5
  • November 12
The Entrance Exam for all Catholic High Schools will be held on November 19, 2022.
St. Joe's will waive the exam fee ($20) for any boy enrolled in the prep course who takes the Entrance Exam at St. Joe's.
A specialized curriculum to fit each grade level's needs. 
The St. Joe's Entrance Exam Prep Course is specifically designed to fit the individual study needs of boys in both 7th and 8th grade.
The 8th grade class emphasizes test taking strategies, including timed practice. An entrance exam review book is included with the course. All instructors are current St. Joe's faculty members.

The 7th grade curriculum will focus less on test-taking, and more on developing underlying skills which prepare students for academic success: reasoning skills, math problem solving, vocabulary, and reading comprehension. A practice exam will be given during the final session and a detailed score report will be mailed to parents after the completion of the course.

Register now. Benefit in the future. 
The cost of the course is $100 and includes 4 instructional sessions led by experienced St. Joe's faculty members and a textbook.

Online registration is now open. Note: the registration fee is not refundable.

Specific instructions regarding arrival on campus, safety procedures, and your son's classroom assignment will be emailed to parents the week prior to the course.
