Eighth Grade Application Process
Eighth graders who are interested in attending Bishop Kearney are required to take the Test for Admission into Catholic High Schools (TACHS) in November. If you missed the TACHS exam, please contact the Office of Admissions.
Admission to the school is based on a student's sixth and seventh-grade academic performance and TACHS scores. Students may select three schools to receive their scores. While we consider all three choices, special preference is given to students listing Bishop Kearney as first choice.
Students who are interested in Academic Scholarships should take the Scholarship Exam at Bishop Kearney which will be held in November of 2019. The test is the HSPT exam. Test preparation can be found in Peterson's Master the Catholic High School Entrance Exams 2018-2019.
The Medaille Program is a comprehensive support program that enables students with IEP’s, documented learning needs, to succeed in the regular classroom. Students with IEPs are responsible for sending their most recent IEP to the Office of Admissions and scheduling an interview before a decision can be made.
