Incoming Freshman

This year’s admissions cycle is unlike any other! The health and well-being of our students and their families are of the utmost importance to us, here at ECHS. Additionally, we recognize the challenges that social distancing restrictions will present for students interested in registering and sitting for entrance exams. Because standardized testing is only one piece of a student’s overall application, we do not want it to be a barrier for entry to East Catholic. Therefore, we have decided to not require an entrance exam this year, unless you would like to be considered for a Merit Scholarship. Please note, in order to be considered for a Merit Scholarship, a student must take the SSAT At Home or the HSPT Online (through ECHS) by November 14, 2020.   

Students are welcome to submit HSPT or SSAT (school code 070373) scores, but taking an entrance exam is not a requirement. East Catholic will offer the HSPT Online this year on Saturday, November 7 and Saturday, November 14. To register for the HSPT Online visit our registration for ECHS entrance exam form. To register for the SSAT At Home visit the SSAT At Home site.

Private tours are available by appointment only. Please visit our Calendly ECHS Tours page to register for your tour today!
