Admissions Events and Entrance Exam Dates

    We look forward to seeing our prospective families on the dates below to learn more about East Catholic High School. Our "Eagles After Hours" events welcome families to stop in any time during 3:45 p.m. - 4:45 p.m. to hear our students describing their life and experiences at East. You will also have a unique opportunity to explore our campus and classrooms. We greatly appreciate pre-registration for these events, but we do not require it. You may reach out to Ms. Devlin at (860) 649.5336 ext. 6238.

    • Thursday, February 8 from 3:45 p.m. - 4:45 p.m.

    All eighth graders applying for entry to ECHS must also take the HSPT entrance exam (including home school students). A student currently enrolled as a freshman in another high school, who is applying as a transfer student, also must take the HSPT exam. If a student has taken the HSPT exam at another high school, the parent/guardian may obtain the results by contacting the school where the test was given and forward the results to East Catholic for consideration.

    A $25 non-refundable fee covers the cost of processing the exam. We do not require pre-registration, but we do encourage it.

    • Thursday, February 15 at 8:30 a.m.
