Strength Assessment and Standardized Test Scores

Strength Assessment

Holy Child Admission Strength Assessment- Holy Child conducts its own admissions testing. Students will be required to demonstrate their ability to analyze text and respond to questions in writing. These assessments will be conducted on our campus. Please choose a date in your portal to sit for the assessment.

Standardized Test Scores

Holy Child does not require the submission of standardized test scores. If the applicant has taken a standardized test at her current school within the last calendar year, you are welcome to include those scores as a component of the submission of her transcript. It is the preference of the applicant and her family as to whether or not you choose to submit standardized test scores. If submitted, standardized test scores will be added to the applicant's file for admission for review by the committee. Applicants who choose to not submit scores will not be penalized in any way.
