Open House and Entrance Exam Dates

Open House and Information Sessions

Our open house this year is on Tuesday, October 22, 2019, at 6:45 p.m. We welcome all students and families to join us to learn more about the East Catholic advantage. During this night families will have the opportunity to receive a student-led campus tour; listen to student speakers; and meet our faculty, staff, and administration team.

We do not require registration to attend, but we always appreciate it. Please RSVP online.

In addition to our open house, we will be offering an exploratory information session on Sunday, November 17, 2019, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. This event will allow families to hone in on specific interests as we will have breakout sessions in academics, financial aid, and athletics. We may add additional breakout sessions per expressed interest.

You are welcome to attend one or both events. Please RSVP for our exploratory information session online.

Entrance Exam Dates - Saturday, November 2, 2019, and Saturday, November 16, 2019

 All eighth graders applying for entry to East Catholic High School must also take the HSPT entrance exam (including home-schooled 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 have the test results forwarded to East Catholic for consideration by contacting the school where the test was given. We will be hosting exams on Saturday, November 2, 2019, and Saturday, November 16, 2019. The test will begin at 8:30 a.m. and last until 11:45 a.m. to noon.

Registration for our entrance exams is preferred, but not required. Please take a moment to reserve your spot by filling out the Entrance Exam Pre-Registration Form. Should you have any questions or have a conflict with the scheduled date, please reach out to the admissions office at (860) 649.5336 ext 6238.
