Class of 2023

9th Grade Application Process

STEP 1:  Complete an Online Application.

STEP 2: Take our Entrance Exam

All applicants for the Class of 2023 are required to take the Entrance Exam. Students must register in advance. Registration for each exam will close three business days before the exam date.
Exams for the Class of 2023 will be held on:

February 12th at 4:00 pm

Students who perform exceptionally well on their exams will be considered for academic scholarships. Students who test in October and November will be given priority for scholarship consideration. Visit our Scholarships page to learn more.

STEP 3: Send us your records.

As part of the application process, we will review your final 7th grade and most recent 8th grade report card.

If you attend a Catholic grade school in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, you do not need to send us your records. We can access them through the Archdiocesan school database.

If you attend a public, charter, or non-Archdiocesan Catholic school, complete the Records Release Form and submit it to your current school (do not send this form to Neumann Goretti). Your current school should then send your records directly to us.

STEP 4: Apply for Financial Aid & Scholarships

We are committed to making a Neumann Goretti education accessible for all families. We encourage every family to apply for financial aid and consider available scholarships. For additional information about tuition and financial aid, contact our Tuition Officer, Denise Arrigale: or 215.465.8437, ext. 246.

STEP 5: Visit Us

We encourage all future Saints to attend our Open House and Shadow a Saint for a day.

STEP 6: Acceptance and Registration

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, so it is to a student’s benefit to apply early. We will only review complete applications that include both 7th and 8th grade records and Entrance Exam scores. Upon review of the student’s application, you will be notified by mail of your status and merit scholarship eligibility. Accepted students must return a completed registration form and fee in order to register and hold their spot.
