What is the next step in the application process after a student receives a decision letter?
|Re-Enrollment Contract 20-21.pdf|
As part of the application process, all students applying to Trinity Catholic High School as incoming freshmen must take the High School Placement Test (HSPT) entrance exam. This exam provides information on student achievement in the following cognitive and basic skills areas: verbal and quantitative skills, reading, mathematics, and language. To qualify for an academic scholarship or financial aid, the entrance exam must be taken.
To sign up for an entrance exam, please email Mrs. Barbara Duffin or Enrollment Director.
Transfer students are not required to take an entrance exam. Their applications are considered on the basis of their current school records.
Your student's records from the 6th through 8th grade are required for 9th grade. The Release of Records Authorization form is provided for this purpose. Transfer students are required to submit their current class schedule and two letters of recommendations and current report cards. You may use the Records Release Form.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to spend a half-day or a full day on campus visiting classes and meeting students but this is not a required component of the application process. These visits are by reservation only and can be arranged around the applicant's availability and current school schedule. Please contact Mrs. Barbara Duffin, our Enrollment Director, at 203.487.8242. Please download the Crusader for a Day permission form and have the student bring with them the day of their visit.
Decision letters will be mailed on a rolling basis as applications are completed and reviewed, starting with the first mailing on December 15th.
In order to guarantee your student’s place in the freshmen class for the school year 2020-2021, he or she must be registered (registration form completed, a $200 registration fee and a $50 student activity fee received) no later than January 24th, 2020. Acceptance letters will include information regarding enrollment.
An entrance exam is not necessary for a transferring student. Download our Application for Admission form and our Release of Records Authorization form. The completed application, along with a $50 application fee and the completed Release of Records form must be returned to Mrs. Barbara Duffin, Enrollment Director.
Once completed paperwork is received, an interview will be conducted by the Admissions Office. Please note that we do not accept 12th grade transfer students unless there is a family relocation or an extenuating circumstance.
International student benefits are two-fold. The international students benefit from the strong education they receive here in the United States while our American students benefit from the exposure they receive to different cultures and customs. Currently students from Asia, Europe, the Caribbean and Australia are enrolled at TCHS. We welcome any interested students to apply.
We work with several agencies for the placement of international students.
Tuition for international students for the 2020-2021 academic year is $20,500. This includes tuition as well as all fees. This figure does not include i-Pad, textbooks or uniforms.
Within two weeks of receiving an acceptance letter to Trinity Catholic, a non-refundable $1,000 deposit must be remitted to the school. This figure includes a $500 registration fee and a $500 tuition deposit which will be credited to the student’s account. If the deposit is not sent to Trinity Catholic High School within that two week period, the student’s acceptance can be rescinded. The remainder of the tuition is due to the school by September 2, 2020.
