Early Commitment Program

Early Commitment Page:
St. Francis High School’s honors, Project Lead the Way, AP programs and the Presidential Scholarship Program have experienced great demand. The number of spaces available in these programs and in the freshman class is limited. In an effort to more effectively meet that demand and provide a quality Catholic college preparatory education to the communities we serve, St. Francis High School has begun to admit students through an Early Commitment Program.

Students who apply for the freshman class beginning in Fall 2017 (the graduating Class of 2021) by October 28th, 2016 will be notified of the school’s admissions decision by November 13th, 2016, our annual Open House.

To be considered for the Early Commitment Program, the student will complete:
The application LINK (Due on October 28th, 2016)

Interview (time and date to be assigned in early November)

HSPT placement exam on either January 14th, 2017 or January 21st, 2017

The student will ask his/her principal or counselor from his/her grammar school to provide the following by October 23, 2015( All recommendations are sent via the online application):

Cumulative grade report through the 7th grade

Iowa test scores (or similar standardized testing results) through the 7th grade.

Principal recommendation form (confidential)

Students who are admitted through the Early Commitment Program will have a guaranteed space in the freshman class for 2017-2018; will not be charged additional fees for the high school placement exam, and will pay a discounted registration fee.
