Morris Catholic High School and its Admissions Committee welcome all prospective students and their families to explore the academic, social and spiritual opportunities present in our community.
COOP EXAM: Please contact Maureen Costello at 973-627-6674 ext. 132 for COOP Exam make-up dates.
The Advancement Office serves as the point of contact for the admissions process. In order to provide applicants with a comprehensive review, the Admissions Committee evaluates the following factors:
A completed application for admission includes:
- Academic records from the current school
- Standardized test scores from recent years
- Results of the Diocesan Cooperative Entrance Exam/COOP (required of 9th grade applicants)
- Any educational testing and related documents or plans
- Recommendations provided by a student’s current teacher, counselor or school administrator
- Student interests, special talents and potential in our high school environment
- An interview with a member of the Admissions Committee (if requested by MCHS)
Ninth grade applicants who complete this process by mid-December of the eighth grade year will be reviewed for admission and notified of admission status by late January. Accepted students will be invited to register formally for the incoming freshman class. Students who apply subsequently will be notified on an ongoing basis. In the event that the upcoming freshman class reaches it maximum enrollment, late applicants may be placed on a waitlist of deferred applicants.
Transfer applicants must submit all application materials in the spring of the current school year to be considered for September admission. Transfer applicants requesting a mid-year admission will be considered on a limited basis. Senior transfer applicants will only be considered due to extenuating circumstances. Transfer applicants must present a valid rationale for attending Morris Catholic as determined by the Admissions Committee and Administration.
Morris Catholic also welcomes international students who, by submission of academic records and supporting information, display scholastic promise and commitment to our program and philosophy.
All applicants for admission must meet Morris Catholic’s standards and expectations in the areas of academics, behavior and school citizenship.
