Policy & Procedure

Admissions Policy

Students are accepted at Padua Franciscan High School primarily on their ability to do satisfactory work in Padua’s curriculum and to function within our guidelines and policies.

The following items are evaluated in the admissions process to determine a student’s ability to succeed at Padua: the entire grade school record (with emphasis on 6th, 7th, and 8th grade achievement), conduct, effort, attendance, standardized tests taken on the elementary level, and performance on the Padua placement test. Padua Franciscan also takes into consideration the level of demonstrated support for Catholic education and its ideals on the part of both the student and parents.

Padua Franciscan does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, ancestry, or physical handicap.

Admissions Procedure

Beginning January 9, 2017, Application forms will be:

  • Distributed to all 8th grade students attending Catholic elementary schools.
  • Non-Catholic school students can apply online.
