8th Grade Admissions Process







Welcome To Father Judge High School

A school that is not constantly changing is a school that is not improving.  We never grow complacent at Father Judge and that’s why our work is never done.  Staying true to our mission in an ever-changing world requires new approaches and an unceasing commitment to provide the best venue for your son’s education.  Take a look around our campus and you will see that we are never satisfied.  We are constantly striving to improve our “product.”  Over the last 10 years we have invested more than $13 million to create a true campus, one where your son will get more than an education, he will get the “Judge Experience.”

The next four years will take your child from boy to man and it is our responsibility to provide you every opportunity to make his educational experience, memories and friendships last a lifetime.  We have the most dedicated teachers who provide the learning tools for your son to become a leader in today’s global economy; we have the strongest alumni and Board volunteers who bleed Judge Red & Blue and whose passion it is to raise money for improvements and financial aid; we have the best programs to support and motivate the high achievers and the students who need extra assistance to succeed.

We make sure that Father Judge graduates have the skills and values it takes “to be who you are and be that well.”  Those words from our patron, St. Francis de Sales, motivate us each year to graduate boys who succeed in college and go on to become successful lawyers, judges, educators, doctors, journalists, skilled tradesmen, civil servants, entrepreneurs, servicemen, scientists, engineers, nurses and financial wizards.

Be sure to visit us in person during an open house, a financial aid night or cheer us on at a game.

What Is The Timeline For The Admissions Process
Father Judge is selective in its admissions standards.  Entering high school means starting down the path to tougher academics.  We admit students who we believe are prepared to be successful in a demanding high school environment  on a rolling basis, which means we review your son’s completed application (must be completed online) and elementary school grades as soon as we receive each.  We then mail offers of admission within approximately two weeks.  We encourage your son to apply early as some students may be required to schedule an admissions interview based on the request of a Father Judge High School administrator.
