Entrance Exams

Eastside Catholic requires prospective students to take an entrance examination to be considered for admission, merit-based awards and class placement. Applicants should take the test as soon as possible and include the Eastside Catholic School code on their registration form. Eastside Catholic will accept results from the High School Placement Test (high school applicants only), the Secondary School Admission Test or the Independent School Entrance Exam.
