We also offer parents and families several opportunities to gather to learn about the life of the school and meet each other, including new parent orientation and open house.
  • Q.

    Is there a “typical” Justin-Siena student?

    No, each student is unique and has his or her own talents and gifts that he or she brings to our community. We do seek students who work hard, play hard, and are upstanding members of their school communities.
  • Q. Do you consider more than just quantitative (standardized test results, GPA) factors?

    We like to look at each applicant as a whole and get to know him/her as a person to see what kind of thinker, student, and person he/she is. We do require all freshman applicants to take an Entrance Exam, and submit his/ her 7th and 8th grade transcript and discipline files. As part of the admissions process we also require your current Principal, Math teacher, and English teacher to complete recommendations. We also encourage you to have any other teacher, coach, counselor, or pastor to also complete a recommendation. We also have an admission interview with the applicant as well as his/her parents.
