Admissions CriteriA

In making decisions, the Admissions Committee will carefully review your application. We want to ensure that you will thrive in our academic environment and enhance life at SLUH. Your acceptance will be based on the consideration of many factors, including but not limited to:

  • strong academic performance in grades 6, 7 & 8
  • high achievement on standardized tests (top quartile)
  • exemplary conduct and effort in the classroom
  • leadership potential (as demonstrated through your involvement in co-curriculars and community service)
  • commitment to a Catholic education and regular practice of faith
  • a personal interview

If they have questions, we encourage your parents to discuss your profile with Ann Murphy, Director of Admissions. Please contact (314) 269-2097 or amurphy@sluh.org to set up an appointment.
