Step 2:  The High School Placement Test

All students interested in attending Roger Bacon High School are required to take the High School Placement Test (HSPT). This test will be offered by all of the parochial high schools in Cincinnati on Saturday, November 17, 2019 at 8:30 AM.  We encourage students to take the test at Roger Bacon.  However, if you choose to take the test at another high school, we require your test results to be sent to Roger Bacon to qualify for any of the $300,000 in scholarships we offer.

Step 3: Application for Admission

Once you create your SpartanLink account, you can choose between the General Admission or the Freshman Honors Program Application. In order to complete the application, a Release of Records Form and two teacher recommendations must be submitted. 

Release of Records:

  1. Catholic elementary school applicants should use the Archdiocese of Cincinnati Release of Records Authorization.  This form will be given at your son our daughter's school and is due to them on November 1. 
  2. Non-Catholic elementary school applicants should use the Roger Bacon Release of Records Form.  This is available for download in your SpartanLink account.

Teacher Recommendation Forms:

  1. All applicants should download the Math Teacher Recommendation Form and the English/Social Studies Teacher Recommendation Form from your SpartanLink account and give to your selected teacher by Monday, November 19.  Recommendations are due to Roger Bacon High School by Friday, December 8.

The Admissions Committee carefully reviews each applicant in choosing the best candidates for our school. Applications are due on, Monday, November 20.

In addition, each student will be given a prompt to upload a personal statement. This year’s prompt for ninth grade admissions is:

A portion of the Roger Bacon Fight Song reads "Spartan courage never yields; whatever the outcome be." Please tell us of a time or experience when you refused to give up, no matter the challenge or outcome.
