Welcome and thank you for your interest in St. Louis University High School!

There is something special about SLUH. It is not just our rigorous college-preparatory curriculum. It is not only our rich athletic tradition or our array of clubs and activities. And it is not solely our Ignatian spirituality and community service program offering students the opportunity to cultivate their development as "Men for Others.” It is a combination of all coupled with a diverse and caring community that truly creates an incredible high school.

We invite you to learn more about our school by further exploring our website and visiting us on campus. You will learn that our student body mirrors St. Louis’ geographic and socio-economic diversity and that we admit students based on their ability to succeed regardless of their ability to pay. Over $3 million in scholarships will be awarded during the 2014-15 school year. 

SLUH’s admissions process is designed to allow prospective students and their families the opportunity to learn about our school and for us to get to know each applicant. We welcome applications from qualified eighth grade boys in the fall of each year. Admission to SLUH is based on the consideration of many factors including, but not limited to: achievement on standardized tests, academic performance in grades 6, 7 and 8, conduct/effort in the classroom, leadership potential, commitment to a Catholic education and regular practice of faith, and personal interview.

Our admissions team is eager to meet you, answer your questions, and guide you through the application process. In the meantime, follow YOUARESLUH on Instagram and Twitter.  There is something special about SLUH. Find out what that is for you.

Believe it. Become it. SLUH.
