Entrance Exam for Class of 2024

With the application deadlines for next year’s ninth grade looming, DeLaSalle announces additional opportunities for eighth grade students to take a make-up Entrance Exam.

  • Saturday, January 18 – 9:00 a.m. to Noon
  • Sunday, January 19 – Noon to 3:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, January 25 – 9:00 a.m. to Noon
  • Saturday, February 1 – 9:00 a.m. to Noon

All make-up exams will be offered in the Admission Office in Christian Brothers Hall, the building which faces Grove Street on the north (or back) side of the campus.  Please pre-register for one of these make-up exams by calling Mike O’Keefe at 612-676-7679 or Anne LoCoco at 612-676-7665.  DeLaSalle charges no fee for the exam and provides all test materials, including pencils.

While DeLaSalle will continue to accept applications after the February 14 deadline, it is strongly recommended that students complete their applications by this date.  By the 14th, students must submit (1) an application, (2) a copy of middle school transcripts, (3) at least one letter of recommendation from a current teacher, and (4) take the Entrance Exam.   If a family submits three letters of recommendation, the applicant will be considered both for potential admission and potential merit scholarship.

All application materials — as well as a link to the Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS) financial aid application portal — are available at https://delasalle.com/admissions/applying-for-admissions/.

Families may choose to take advantage of a new “early decision” option in 2020.   Those who complete their application by January 31 will receive an admission decision from DeLaSalle by February 8; those who apply by the regular deadline of February 14 are not penalized in any way, but they would not receive a response until February 22.

All eighth graders who are offered admission are invited to register for ninth grade at DeLaSalle on Saturday, February 29.  It’s likely that we will fill the Class of 2024 on that date.
