Admissions Criteria

Everything the Admissions Committee does is in accord with the Walsh Jesuit Mission Statement.  Walsh Jesuit High School, a Catholic, college preparatory high school that, in the spirit of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, reaches beyond academic excellence to develop competence, conscience, and compassion within its graduates.  As a Christ-centered community, we strive to be Men and Women for Others.

More than a motto, Men and Women for Others is a vision exemplifying our determination to change the world through the lives of our students and alumni, into one more closely modeled after Jesus.

Below are the Admissions Criteria and the Admissions Policy.  If you have questions, please email eubankr@walshjesuit.org and Mr. Eubank will respond as soon as possible. 

ADMISSIONS CRITERIA
Walsh Jesuit evaluates each student's application based, in part, upon the following criteria:

•Desire for a Walsh Jesuit education
•Admissions Application 
•Junior high grades (7th and 8th grade)
•Entrance exam results
•Teacher recommendations

Students in the 8th grade who wish to apply to Walsh Jesuit must sit for an entrance exam.  A parent information program/ continental breakfast will also be held at each entrance exam session. 

ADMISSIONS POLICY
As a Catholic, college preparatory school in the Jesuit tradition, Walsh Jesuit actively seeks a student body that represents a broad and diverse variety of abilities, talents, backgrounds, and interests.

The Admissions Committee reviews each applicant for admission in a holistic way.  There is no one factor that will inhibit a student from attending Walsh Jesuit, nor one single factor that will ensure student admission.
