First and foremost, the entrance exam is of critical importance. The entrance exam score is important because Salpointe’s applicant pool is always a very large, diverse group of students from all over Southern Arizona. Additional consideration is given to standardized testing data, 7th and 8th grade transcripts, recommendations, legacy, Catholicity and family interview. Find out more at our Policy on Admission of Students page.
The best preparation to be successful is to work hard in middle school. Students should get a good night's sleep before the test and eat breakfast. Some students find it helpful to become familiar with the format of the exam. However, the daily academic activity in middle school is adequate preparation for the exam.
