Application Procedures

Bishop Stang High School admits students from all academic levels. To determine a motivated learner we look to the student’s academic transcript (grades C- or above) and Principal and Teacher recommendations. Results from the placement exam are used for the purpose of placement into our four academic levels. Pastor/Personal Recommendations are used to determine the applicant’s depth of character and level of citizenship. The student’s application essays help us to get to know the student better, by learning where their interests lie and what they may have to offer our school community.
