Admissions Process

Application Deadline

Freshman applications are due January 16, 2015. Jesuit High School accepts transfer student applications starting February 2, 2015 for students entering into grades 10 and 11. A complete application includes student information, essays by the parent(s), and an explanation by the student as to why he or she wishes to become part of the Jesuit High School community. All families are required to participate in a family interview as well. There is a $50 non-refundable application fee.

Freshman applicants must take the High School Placement Test on December 5 or December 6, 2014 which helps determine course selection. All applicants also supply Jesuit with school records (grades, test scores) and school-based recommendations.

Review Process

School records, test scores, and application information are reviewed by the Admissions Committee, which is composed of Jesuit faculty members and administrators. The committee reviews the applications on the basis of Jesuit's Mission Statement and the Profile of the Jesuit High School Graduate at Graduation.

The Admissions Committee considers religious commitment, academic record, relationship with peers and teachers, talents and interests, special circumstances, and the overall balance and diversity of the freshman class. Unfortunately, not every qualified applicant can be admitted.

Selection Process

Notification letters to freshmen are mailed on March 13, 2015. Historically, Jesuit High School receives over 500 applications for 320 positions in the freshman class. If you have questions, please contact Patsy Chambers at pchambers@jesuitportland.org or call 503-291-5423.

Transfer Applications

Transfer applications are handled on an individual basis. When openings occur in grades 10-11 (which sometimes happens as late as the summer), we will fill the spots from the pool of current transfer applicants. We are unable to predict how many openings there might be from year to year. For more transfer information, please click here.
