Step 2 – Apply to St. Michael the Archangel

 #1 – COMPLETE AN APPLICATION. Its FREE to apply!  The first of three steps in the admissions process is to complete a no-cost application for St. Michael the Archangel by creating an SMA Parent Portal account (below).  A checklist of admissions items will need to be completed before his/her application will be considered for acceptance to St. Michael. Beginning in January, acceptance letters will be mailed to the student’s home.

#2 – RECORDS RELEASE FORM – All prospective students must have a signed Records Release Form on file so the St. Michael registrar can obtain records from the prospective student’s school. You may download the PDF from the “Records Release Form” checklist item in your Parent Portal, print off the form and fill in the appropriate information, and upload a scanned copy of the completed form to the same checklist item using the blue “upload” button at the top of the checklist line. To download the form immediately, click below.

#3 – High School Placement Test (HSPT) – The High School Placement Test is a required step in the admissions process for 8th graders applying for 9th grade.  Transfer students from other high schools do not take the HSPT. Students who attend SMA come from many different Jr High schools and backgrounds.  The HSPT helps us determine the appropriate class placement as a student at SMA. There is a $20 fee to take the test.  If your student is interested in attending St. Michael and still needs to take the HSPT, please email jhyde@smacatholic.org for future tests dates for the 2022 spring semester.

Please note: No accommodations will be provided for remaining HSPT exams for the spring, 2022.
