As is the long-standing tradition for St. Louis Catholic high schools, the SLUH Admissions Committee sent out high school acceptance letters to over 300 area middle school students last Friday. The prospective students’ long journey to becoming Jr. Bills, filled with Shadow@SLUH visits, family interviews, placement tests, and more, finally culminated with them receiving two official acceptance letters—one physical copy in the mail and one that could be accessed online—and the coveted yard signs which spanned 64 zip codes in the greater St. Louis area.

The choice between Irish Lit and Shakespeare is a difficult one, and now it’s time to make that decision as  students begin to pick their courses for next year. As class scheduling options for current sophomores and juniors start to open up, a slightly different approach will be taken to ensure that the process goes smoothly and easily. New Assistant Principal for Academics Kevin Foy is moving the signups to an online form to increase efficiency and accuracy.

  • Sports
