All eighth grade girls who are interested in attending Josephinum must complete the Catholic High School entrance exam. With school buildings currently closed across Chicagoland, scheduling of make-up exams is currently on hold. If a prospective student has not yet taken the entrance exam, please contact our Admissions department at admissions@josephinum.org to set up a time to test once the building re-opens (date TBD).

If your prospective student HAS taken the Catholic High School entrance exam and has either not been accepted to a particular school, or wishes to decline an acceptance and apply to Josephinum, please request that the school where your student tested release her test scores to Josephinum’s Admissions department at admissions@josephinum.org.

On exam day, students should bring:

  • Two #2 pencils
  • $25 testing fee (cash or check payable to Josephinum Academy)
  • Special needs documentation (if applicable)
  • Josephinum is offering over $200,000 in merit-based scholarships to the incoming class. Consideration will be given to those who test with us and promptly submit their Future Leader Scholarship Program (FLSP) application. Apply today at josephinum.org/flsp.

    Josephinum staff will be available to address any questions you may have regarding the admissions process.

    If possible, parents/guardians should bring:

    • Your child's 7th and 8th grade report cards or transcript
    • Your child's standardized test scores
    • Your child's current school attendance/discipline records
    • A teacher recommendation letter/form*
    • Your 2018 tax returns and 2019 W-2s (if applying for FLSP or aid)

    *Highly recommended, but not required
