Frequently Asked Questions

When is Servite’s Open House?

Servite’s Open House will be held on campus Sunday, December 3, from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM.

When is the Entrance Exam?

Servite administers the High School Placement Test (HSPT). It will be given on campus on Saturday, January 27, at 8:00 am.

Does Servite accept Entrance Exams taken at other schools?

With the number of applications that Servite receives, it is highly recommended that applicants take the HSPT here at Servite. If your circumstances prohibit this, Servite may accept the HSPT taken at another school on a case by case basis. If necessary, please contact the Admissions Office at admissions@servitehs.org.

What criteria are used for admissions decisions?

Academic aptitude and leadership potential are assessed through 7th and 8th grade academic records, standardized test scores, Entrance Exam scores, personal interviews and recommendation forms from current English and Math teachers. Additional recommendation letters are also accepted and those from current members of the Servite family are especially valued.

When do applicants find out if they've been admitted?

Our Early Admission deadline is Friday, December 8. All applicants whose applications are complete by this date (all six elements) will receive a decision no later than Friday, December 22. Our Regular Admission deadline is Monday, January 29. All applicants whose applications are complete by this date (all six elements) or who were deferred from Early Admission will receive a decision no later than Tuesday, February 21.

How is Honors Placement determined?

Students come to Servite from a variety of schools; therefore, Servite uses the HSPT scores and the student’s 7th and 8th grade academic transcripts to determine Honors Placement. Decisions made by the Admissions Committee are final and once admitted, students cannot “opt into” the Honors Program. Honors Placement for sophomore, junior, and senior year is open to all students and is determined course by course based on past performance and teacher recommendations. Upon acceptance, students are admitted and placed into one of four freshman tracts (Full Honors, Math/Science Honors, Liberal Arts Honors, or College Prep). Students must take a challenge exam if they are interested in advanced placement for either Spanish or Math.

What is the current tuition cost? Are there other expenses?
