Regis supports families in multiple ways throughout the high school admissions process. In early September, the Middle School Division Head and Dean of Students meet with all parents to provide an overview of the high school admissions process including important deadlines and tips for success.
High School Placement Tests (HSPT/ISEE)
Throughout the first semester of eighth grade, Regis faculty offer a test preparation course for all interested students. The course is typically held on Saturday mornings throughout the fall. In December, Regis sponsors a practice high school entrance test during the school day for all eighth grade students.
As requested, the Regis Director of Admissions meets with eighth grade students to discuss and prepare for the high school admissions interview.
Regis faculty and administrators complete recommendation forms as requested, and the Regis registrar submits all recommendations and transcripts to the prospective high schools on behalf of the Regis students.
Discerning the Right Fit
Regis students are encouraged to visit local high schools and participate in open houses and shadow days. As a class, students also participate in group tours offered and invited by local high schools. Regis eighth grade students also have an opportunity to speak with recent Regis graduates to learn tips for making a successful transition from Regis to high school.
Regis did a great job in assisting my classmates and me throughout the high school application process. Not only were we better prepared for high school, but we all got into the school of our choice.
