Applying to Archbishop Spalding
Schedule a Student Visit
We encourage students to arrange a Visit Day to Archbishop Spalding by completing the online request form.
All applicants to grade 9 must sit for the Archdiocesan Admissions/Placement test (HSPT). Students accepted from the wait-pool will arrange individual testing through the Admissions Office.
Applicants in middle/elementary schools in the Archdiocese of Washington take the test in their current school and can indicate Archbishop Spalding on the answer sheet to receive a copy of the results. Students testing in the Archdiocese of Washington will be charged an extra fee to have results sent to a school (only one school will be permitted) in the Archdiocese of Baltimore.
A complete application will include:
Online Application for Admission
$100 Application fee
Records from grade 6 up through most recent report card (any standardized testing, attendance and discipline records should be included)
Academic Recommendation form (Not required of students attending a school in the Archdiocese of Baltimore)
Responses to the Applicant Questionnaire
Photograph of student
Records and Recommendations
Students attending a school in the Archdiocese of Baltimore should complete the Archdiocese of Baltimore Catholic High School Information Form available at the applicant's school. Students attending all other area schools should submit our Request for Records form and Academic Recommendation form to their current school. Archbishop Spalding welcomes letters of endorsement from outside of the school as well (Pastors, Coaches, Activity moderators, Spalding families, etc.)
Students have the option to schedule a personal meeting with an Admissions officer. Meetings are optional for every applicant to the 9th grade, unless the student applies for a leadership scholarship and/or qualifies for an academic scholarship. We will be happy to schedule this meeting on your visit day, by request only
Academic scholarship candidates are notified of their eligibility following the Admissions/Placement Test. Leadership and Music scholarship applications were due to the Admissions Office by December 22, 2014. Applications to a wait-pool are currently being accepted.
Tuition Assistance Applications
The deadline for incoming freshman to apply for financial aid was Monday, December 22, 2014. Applicants to the wait-pool may still complete an application for aid but understand that any tuition assistance is subject to the availability of funds.
