The Two Step Admissions Process

Prior to an acceptance decision being made, students must complete both application steps. You may complete these steps in any order you prefer so long as everything is completed by January 8th, 2021. 

*Due to Covid-19, the High School Placement Test (HSPT) will not be offered or required for admission to the class of 2025*

Step 1- Take your Official Visit! 

This year, visiting St. Mary's Prep will look a little bit different than in previous years, but we assure that your visit will special and created just for you! Families may sign up for an Official Visit which will replace a traditional shadow day, parent tour, and Open House experience. For more information on Official Visit's, and to sign up for yours, please click the box below. 

* if you choose not to take an official visit, a Zoom interview with the Dean or Director of Admissions will be required prior to acceptance*

Step 2- Complete the Application

All students are required to complete an online application prior to acceptance. There are three sections to a student's application:

      Initial application portion completed by the student & parents

      Teacher recommendation- to be completed by a current 8th grade teacher. 

      Transcripts/grades- parents are required to submit a transcript             request form to their child's school counselor to request transcripts be sent. 

All of the above steps are included with the application account that you will create for your applicant. Please be sure to read each of the steps as they are very detailed. 

Parents are required to request the teacher recommendation and transcripts- we cannot request them on your behalf. 

9th grade applicants must submit a minimum of their 1st quarter 8th grade grades

Transfer students must contact admissions before beginning an application 


Applications for the class of 2025/ 2021-2022 school year will be accepted starting October 1, 2020
please do not begin an application before October 1, 2020

Applicants Requiring Academic Accommodations 

If the applicant is on a current documented and supported IEP, 504 or another form of an accommodation plan, please contact Candace Castiglione, Dean of Admissions at 248-392-9280 or to discuss the applicant. It is important that our staff discusses the applicant’s accommodation plan, so that we may further be aware of the specialized needs of the student. Our priority is to ensure the academic success of every prospective student and having these conversations first is a wonderful way to start.
