High School Placement

Saint Columbkille takes pride in its graduates and provides grade 8 students with hands-on support and guidance in order to be successful as they apply for and attend high school and beyond.
 
Loyola Academy administrators, teachers and the Student Support Coordinator work closely with our 8th grade students to support them in the high school application process. Each fall, an interactive high school fair night is planned where admissions representatives from private/independent schools around Boston share information and admissions requirements for 8th graders and their families.
 
 
Each week, 8th grade students attend an advisory meeting with the Student Support Coordinator, who provides detailed information about how to start online applications for high school and a calendar of dates and deadlines. Further, students receive assistance with their application essay questions and administrators make sure they are signed up for the correct placement tests. If interested, the Student Support Coordinator can connect students with a test prep course at a local high school.
 
 
Loyola Academy administrators, teachers and the Student Support Coordinator get to know each student on an academic and personal level, and are able to write in-depth and dynamic letters of recommendation for English/Language Arts and Math. Additionally, school reports and transcript information are compiled as part of each student’s high school application.
