Register for the Placement Exam -  Saturday, November 2 or Saturday, November 16 at 8:00 a.m. 

  • This is a national high school exam written by Scholastic Testing Services. The exam covers five areas: verbal, language, reading, math skills and quantitative math (math aptitude).  
  • Test scores help to evaluate incoming freshmen and will be used to determine placement in college prep, honors, and AP classes.  
  • Test scores will also be used to determine eligibility for the DeSales Scholarship (only students taking the test on the November dates are eligible for this scholarship). 
  • There is no testing fee.
  • If applying after the November Placement Exam dates, there will be monthly testing dates offered as needed. 

Additional Documentation Required: 

  • Unofficial copy of your child’s records from sixth, seventh, and eighth grade (through the most recent quarter grades).

                  *Students currently enrolled in our partner middle schools do not need to complete this process as records will be sent directly from the middle school: St. Andrew, St. Francis Xavier, St. Michael, Fort Myers Christian, Royal Palm Academy, 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 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 received prior to the date your child is tested.

Please submit all required documentation within the online application or directly to the Admissions Office. Admission decisions cannot be made until all required documents have been received.
