Admissions Process

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

L.D. Program Admissions Policy

The purpose of the Learning Disabilities program is to educate students to the maximum of their potential, increase the students’ opportunities for success, and to prepare for ongoing educational experiences.

If your student is interested in applying to Padua, please email, fax or mail a copy of your son/daughter’s current IEP and ETR documentation (from 7th or 8th grade) to Ann Marie Frattare at afrattare@paduafranciscan.com. Our school psychologist will review the paperwork and let you know if we can meet your child’s educational needs.

If Padua has the services available to meet a student’s needs, it is policy to have our School Psychologist observe applicants with an IEP/ISP and ETR Plan or a 504/SEGO Plan at their school or when they shadow at Padua.  Please complete and return the Student Observation Authorization Form.
