December 16, 2022 - Application Deadline 

Any school of the same caliber as St. Agnes will have multiple parts and strict deadlines regarding its application process.

January 16, 2023 (3 Separate Deadlines)

1. Financial Aid Application Deadline

Financial aid decisions are made separately from and independently of admission decisions. The admission decision is made before the financial-aid review, and the Financial Aid Committee has no involvement with a candidate's being offered a place at St. Agnes.

Every tuition grant is made for one year. The St. Agnes Financial Aid Committee may renew it subject to the parents filing an annual financial statement and the students maintaining sound academic and high citizenship standards. For more information on the Financial Aid process, visit this website page.

2. Teacher Recommendations Deadline

St. Agnes asks that all applicants submit teacher recommendation forms from their current 8th-grade English teacher and Math teacher. 

An applicant's teacher can complete the recommendation forms electronically. Teachers should get to know the applicant well; therefore, the St. Agnes Admissions Team asks that applicants not submit recommendation forms before December 1.

If an applicant's teachers prefer to complete the forms by hand, the documents may be printed and delivered directly to the teacher. Once completed, the teachers will email this recommendation form directly to the St. Agnes Admissions Office. 

3. Transcripts Deadline

Final report cards from the previous two grades and the first semester of the current grade are required. Instructions to upload each report card are available online.

February 1, 2023 - Entrance Exam Score Deadline 

All applicants must submit one entrance exam score to be considered for admission. St. Agnes only accepts the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) test score. Students are welcome to take the ISEE at any testing location offered. St. Agnes will accept and review up to 2 ISEE results.

March 10, 2023 - Admission Status Released 

Houston area private schools release their admissions decisions very near to each other. This is an exciting time for many. More dates regarding registration and placement exams will come after receiving admittance to St. Agnes.
