Application Process for Prospective Freshman Students

We encourage parent/s of eighth grade students to complete an application for admission using our online application form by the end of October to ensure your child will take the freshman placement exam in November.  We will continue to accept applications throughout the remainder of the school year and plan to offer the placement exam once a month starting in January if needed.  Only students who take the exam on November 2 or 16 will be eligible for the DeSales Scholarship.  The top five performers on the exam in November will be offered the DeSales Scholarship.

Click here to submit an application!  There is a $75 fee to apply.  The fee is non-refundable. 

The placement exam helps us evaluate incoming freshman in reading comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, and math. These scores will be used to determine placement in college prep, honors and AP classes.  

In addition to the student application, please submit an unofficial copy of your child’s records from sixth, seventh, and eighth grade (through the most recent quarter grades). Students from the following middle schools do not need to complete this process as we will get these records directly from the middle school: St. Andrew, St. Francis Xavier, St. Michael, Fort Myers Christian, Royal Palm Accademy, and St. Charles Borromeo.  

Records should include the following:

Courses taken with completed grades given/credits earned*
Standardized testing (FCATs, ITBS, Stanford Achievement)
Documentation of any learning challenges/disabilities, including psycho-educational testing and/or IEP or 504 plans, if applicable

Copy of the Florida Immunization and Physical forms

Statement of Discipline from middle school administrator

*We understand that eighth grade records will be incomplete. A copy of the most recent eighth grade report card available will be sufficient. This information is necessary before an admissions decision can be made, and would be helpful if the information is received prior to the date your child is tested.

Admission decisions cannot be made until all required material is submitted.

Please submit required materials within the online application if possible.  If not, you can bring or mail information to the following address.  Documents may also be scanned and emailed to
