Admissions Procedures

Grade 9

St. Edmund Preparatory High School considers all applicants but gives preference applicants who take the Test for Admission into Catholic High Schools (TACHS). Students seeking entrance into Grade 9 for the current academic school year should contact Mr. Scott O'Donnell, Director of Admissions for information regarding admissions.

Grades 10/11

Students seeking to transfer into Grades 10 or 11 must first submit an up-to-date transcript and record of immunizations for review by the admissions committee. The transcript should include all of the courses the student has taken to date and should also include any courses the student is enrolled in at his/her current school. Only after the principal accepts the student can he/she move on to the next step in the process. The principal is the sole arbiter in determining whether or not a transfer student will be accepted to the school. Transcripts should be sent to the school to the attention of Mr. Scott O'Donnell, Director of Admissions. Transcripts can be mailed to:

St. Edmund Prep
2474 Ocean Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11229

or faxed to: (718) 743-5243.

Grade 12

It is the policy of St. Edmund Prep not to accept transfer students in their senior year except in very special cases where there are extenuating circumstances. The student’s parent(s) or guardian(s) must first contact the school to discuss the situation before any other action can take place.

International Students

All International students must obtain an I-20 from the United States Government in order to attend school in the United States. St. Edmund Prep will assist eligible students in obtaining this document. International students seeking admission to St. Edmund Prep must follow a number of procedures.

  1. First, a student must seek admission to the school providing he/she meets the requirements.
  2. A transcript of school grades and record of immunizations must be submitted to St. Edmund Prep for review and consideration for admission.
  3. Once a student has been accepted by St. Edmund Prep, the student’s guardian and/or host family must set up an appointment with the main office at which time the I-20 process will be outlined.

If you have any further questions or would like to begin this process, please contact our Director of Admissions.
