EIGHTH GRADE VISITS
We continue to play host to our six Catholic feeder school 8th grade classes this fall.  Because these students and their families represent the future of our school, we hope you will enthusiastically support and encourage their decision to attend Bishop Hartley High School next year. Your recommendation of Bishop Hartley, as satisfied parents, to others is the best testimony of our success. Thank you for your continued support and prayers.  We have enjoyed visits from St. Catherine and St. Pius already this year and All Saints is visiting today, Oct. 24th.  Please see below for a list of remaining schools and visit dates.
October 25:  Holy Spirit
October 29:  St. Matthew
October 31:  St. Mary

PLACEMENT TESTING 
All students registering for admissions for the 2014-15 9th grade class must take a Placement Test.  The results of the test will be one factor used in placement in core classes. Results will also be used by classroom teachers in planning for the 2014-15 school year.  We are using the ACT Explore Test; follow–up testing in the student’s 9th and 10th grade year will help us better prepare the students for the ACT as juniors and seniors and enable us to track progress over time.

Families choose a testing date when they apply online.

Testing Dates:
Saturday, Nov. 9th         9 a.m.-12:30 p.m.*
Saturday, Nov. 16th       9 a.m.-12:30 p.m.*
Saturday, Jan. 25th       9 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Saturday, March 15th    9 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

*Students who apply for a merit-based scholarship MUST take this test on one of these two dates.
