Home School Applicants
Saint John Paul the Great welcomes applicants transferring from home school programs. Because programs vary, clear and concise information about each student and program is necessary in order to properly evaluate the application, and to aid in proper placement decisions.
Our on-line application system guides you step-by-step through the application process and allows you to upload documents, download needed forms, send electronic recommendation requests, and track the progress of your application. For an application to be considered complete and ready for review, the following items must be received by the Admissions office:
1. Application for admission
2. Academic Records:
- 9th Grade Applicants: Please include transcripts for 7th grade and the first semester of 8th grade.
- 10th and 11th Grade Transfer Applicants: All high school level classes completed and in progress at time of application.
- ALL: Applicants who do not use a recognized curriculum and evaluation program (Seton, Abeka, etc…) should complete the JP transcript template available on the on-line application system.
3. Two Teacher Recommendations: One recommendation from the parent as the primary educator, and one from outside the home (tutor, co-op teacher)
4. High School Placement Test (HSPT). All 9th and 10th grade applicants transferring from a home school program must take this exam. It is only taken once. For more information, including dates and how to register, please visit the High School Placement Test page
5. If the student was enrolled in a traditional school setting and was ever involved in serious discipline issues, including multiple referrals, suspensions, or expulsions, documentation detailing the events and outcomes must be sent from the former school to the Admissions office.
6. If the student has an SAP, IEP, 504 or other similar documentation regarding the need for support, documents must be submitted to the Admissions office.
Please note: There are slightly different requirements for non-home-schooled applicants, transfers, international applicants, and Options Program applicants. For more information, please visit:
