New Student Scheduling Meeting

St. Cecilia Academy will notify new students by email when it is time to sign up for a New Student Scheduling Meeting. 
Scheduling Philosophy
To ensure continuity of our mission for educating young women, curation of a St. Cecilia girl's class schedule is both timely and meaningful. Our intentional, common sense approach to our girls' four year academic career at St. Cecilia Academy cultivates a desire for lifelong learning and develops servant leaders. Our thoughtful process prepares girls for academic success both at St. Cecilia Academy and life beyond the Dominican campus. 

Scheduling Process
Once accepted to St. Cecilia Academy, new students sit for Placement Tests in the following subject areas:
  • Math
  • English 
  • Foreign Language*
* Optional Placement Tests

Consideration of the following resources: 

  • Review of Transcripts
  • Review of Math and English Teacher Recommendations
  • Review of ISEE Scores
  • Review of each St. Cecilia Academy Placement Test 
  • New Family Meeting 
    • The Department of Academics meets with each new family to ensure our students choose classes individually tailored to their gifts with an appropriate level of challenge.
