FALL RIVER — Catholic high schools in the Diocese of Fall River will administer a Placement Examination for new students on Saturday, December 7, with a make-up exam scheduled for most schools on Saturday, December 14. Current eighth-grade students wishing to enter any of these schools next September should report to the school in which they are interested in attending no later than 7:45 a.m. The exam will begin at 8 a.m.
Students should bring two sharpened #2 pencils to the test. They need not bring any records with them and a parent(s) need not accompany them, although some schools offer tours and information sessions for parents at the same time of the test. Information regarding courses, activities, and financial aid, etc. will be given at the time of the examination, or can be obtained by contacting the school at any time.
There is a required $20.00 Placement Exam fee at many of the schools. Payment may be made either by cash or a check made payable to the school.
