High School Freshman Admissions
Admissions to Holy Trinity Diocesan High School for incoming ninth grade students is based on the results of the Catholic High School Entrance Exam and review of middle school report cards:
- The Catholic High School Entrance Exam (CHSEE) - All students interested in attending a Catholic high school on Long Island must take the CHSEE in the Fall of their eighth grade year. For consideration for admissions, the student must list Holy Trinity as a school choice on the exam (school code 690).
- Report Cards - All Catholic elementary schools will send their students' report cards to Holy Trinity. For students currently attending public or non-Catholic private school, one must request that the report cards from sixth, seventh, and beginning of eighth grade are sent.
* Special consideration is given to students who graduate from Catholic grammar schools.
Transfer Student Admissions
In addition to the yearly admission of freshmen, Holy Trinity allows current high school students to transfer into Holy Trinity (if space and scheduling permits). To receive consideration for admission into Holy Trinity as a transfer student, the student and family must:
- Submit the student's most recent report card as well as a transcript from the high school(s) that the student has attended. The transcript should include:
- Grades for all classes taken
- School attendance
- Submit results of all standardized tests (including Regents exams) taken by the student.
- Be interviewed by the Assistant Principal of Admissions.
International Student Admissions
Holy Trinity also allows international students to apply for admissions. Upon acceptance, Holy Trinity will issue an I-20 to the admitted international student.
In addition to academic records, international students need to show English proficiency by earning a satisfactory score on the TOEFL or a comparable exam.
