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

SLUH IS A WORLD OF OPPORTUNITIES. Our rigorous academic curriculum challenges our young men to become intellectually competent. Rich athletic traditions and an array of student clubs and activities allow them to be open to growth. Our Ignatian spirituality and community service program cultivate their development as religious men committed to doing justice. And the combination of all, coupled with a diverse and loving community, afford our students the opportunity to become well-rounded and morally strong leaders—men ready to change the world.

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 $3.4 million in scholarships will be awarded during the 2015-16 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 8th grade boys each fall and from qualified 9th and 10th grade boys each spring. Admission to SLUH is based on the consideration of many factors including, but not limited to: achievement on standardized tests, academic performance, conduct/effort in the classroom, leadership potential, commitment to a Catholic education and regular practice of faith, and a personal interview. 

Our admissions team is eager to meet you, answer your questions, and guide you through the application process. In the meantime, follow SLUH on Twitter and SLUH Admissions on Instagram.

So, what in the world are you waiting for? Explore SLUH and make it your world.

Believe It. Become It. SLUH.
