Applying for High School

Hello 8th Graders and Families,

It is that time of the year to start applying for High School. I know this can be a stressful and confusing time for all. For some families this is the first time sending a kiddo to high school and are not familiar with the process. But, for other families, they have already been through this process a number of times. It is always nice to have a reminder and stay up-to-date with the process.

I want all students to have the same opportunity to apply for high schools and make sure they know their options. I created this High School Requirements document to help everyone with the process. I listed the steps on how to apply for St. Louis Public High Schools, Charter Schools in the St. Louis Area, and St. Louis Catholic High Schools. Some schools require more than just an application to be filled out. I listed these "extra" required documents as well, in order to help make sure students and myself are not missing any steps.

Please take some time to review the High School Requirements. If you come across any issues or have any questions please feel free to contact me for help. If you cannot reach me right away, I try to respond to people within 24-48 hours. My email address is or my direct phone line is 314-881-2640 or you can reach at the school's main number 314-645-9600 extension 155. Good luck and let the fun begin.
