2 The High School Placement Test

All 8th-Grade students who plan to apply to Roger Bacon must take the High School Placement Test on Saturday, November 20. The HSPT is given at all area Catholic High Schools, and scores may be shared with up to 3 schools. A centralized registration portal will be available later this summer.

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 enter the email addresses of two teachers (7th/8th grade math and 7th/8th grade language arts or social studies) in the Recommendation link on SpartanLink. Digital recommendation forms will be sent to the teachers you choose.

The Admissions Committee carefully reviews each applicant in choosing the best candidates for our school. Applications are due on Monday, November 22.

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

One of our 16 Franciscan values is "Compassion." Please respond in 300 - 400 words how you embody compassion in your life.
