Admissions Process

Admissions at Bishop Gorman is rolling and proceeds according to the following sequence:

Please complete the new student inquiry form. You may also schedule a tour, take a virtual tour and/or schedule a day for your child to “shadow” a student in his/her current grade level by e-mailing or by contacting Jill Coan, our admissions director, at (903) 579-9403.

Bishop Gorman uses an online management system called FACTS for the admissions process.  Please create a FACTS account and apply online.  Please note there is a non-refundable $50 application fee for each application submitted.   Application fees will be waived for applications submitted by March 1st.

During the application process, if you are unable to upload the Records Release Form into your FACTS account, print the Records Release Form, complete it, and deliver it to your child’s current school. 

After Bishop Gorman receives the completed application and your child’s records from his/her current school, a family interview will be scheduled with the principal or the assistant principal. 

Accepted applicants will complete enrollment through their FACTS Family Portal account. Please note there is a non-refundable registration fee of $300. 

Accepted applicants will take the High School Placement Test or other test to help determine course placement.

Bishop Gorman may use the following criteria in making admissions decisions:

  • Current school record
  • Standardized testing
