October – Campus Visits & Open House

Every year in October, OLP hosts 8th grade students who are interested in attending the academy. These visits are done during the week and provide prospective students with an OLP student’s point of view of our school. We also host an Open House every year that is geared towards prospective parents. Faculty and Administration are available to answer any questions you may have about our school.

For these dates in October, please see our Admissions Calendar.


October-January – Enrollment Application

For the 2017-18 school year, we will begin to accept Enrollment Applications, along with the $55 application fee, on October 1, 2017. We encourage you to submit the Enrollment Application online, no later than January 15, 2017.

PLEASE NOTE: The enrollment application and fee will register your daughter for the Entrance Exam on Saturday, January 21, 2017.


January – Entrance Exam (HSPT)

The Entrance Exam is only for prospective 9th graders. The purpose of the Entrance Exam is to assess the prospective student's 7th and 8th grade knowledge. It is a Diocesan policy that all Catholic High Schools administer the Entrance Exam on the same day, hence students may only test at one school (typically their first choice).

The exam promptly starts at 8 AM. Please have your daughter arrive by 7:45am with two # 2 pencils, a snack and some water. All students are preassigned to a classroom for the exam, upon check in we will notify you of your exam room. There will also be posters listing their assigned test rooms, as well as OLP student ambassadors to help with finding testing classrooms.

The exam will end at 12:00 PM, please plan on picking up your daughter in front of the school office (located on 4860 Oregon Street, San Diego, CA 92116).


February – Interviews & Financial Assistance

Incoming 9th grade students who took the Entrance Exam will be interviewed between February 6 - February 11, 2017. All students will be interviewed on campus at a scheduled date and time.

Applications for financial assistance are due January 15, 2017 along with prior year tax returns. Financial assistance applications are available online.


March – Acceptance Letters & Parent Night

The third week of March students will receive their letters of acceptance.

On a Saturday, towards the end of March, incoming 9th grade students are expected to attend Registration Day. At the Registration Day, parents will register their incoming 9th grade student by returning a signed enrollment contact and paying the $450 registration fee.  Please note, that failure to register and attend the meeting could result in your daughter losing her place in the incoming Freshman class.

For these dates in March, please see our Admissions Calendar.
