1. Release of Records: Upon the successful completion of your current grade, all medical forms and final transcripts must be released from your current school to St Joseph High School. Please see the release form below that you submit to your current middle school in order for these documents to be released. If these forms are not received by the start of the new school year, the new student may not start classes. Also, the Admissions Office reviews all final transcripts and reserves the right to revoke an acceptance decision if a student is not in good standing or does not successfully complete their current school year.
2. Pupil Information: We take great pride in making sure our students and their parents are always notified with any school updates, closings, etc. In order for us to keep our database updated, parents must complete and return the Pupil Information Form that is distributed at the May Orientation. This form must be returned before the start of school due to the important background and contact information for our school office. Please return your form to the main office at St Joseph High School.
- To receive a copy of your personal Pupil Information Form, please contact Mrs Lucy at 203-378-9378 ext 455.
3. Health Assessment Record: Please return the Health Assessment Record Form (distributed at orientation) to the school nurse. The information must be from a physical dated between June 1, 2018 - April 30, 2019. If you are planning on playing a fall sport, the physical must be completed at least one year in advance.
Freshmen Schedules: All schedules are tentative until the start of school due to any course/faculty changes, placement exam results, and summer course completion. If you have any questions before the first day of school, please contact the Admissions Office. Guidance counselor assignments will be communicated in August.
Placement Exams (Math and World Language): The placement exams are not mandatory. These exams are administered to students who wish to opt-in to taking one or both of these exams to be considered for placement (higher than level 1) in these subjects.
