Director of Admissions
Admissions at Bishop Gorman is rolling and proceeds according to the following sequence:
Step 1: Inquire and Visit
Step 2: Apply
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 $95 application fee for each application submitted (which includes a $20 FACTS fee).
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.
Step 3: Interview
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.
Step 4: Register
Accepted applicants will complete enrollment through their FACTS Family Portal account. Please note there is a non-refundable registration fee of $300.
Step 5: Placement Test
Accepted applicants will take the High School Placement Test or other test to help determine course placement.
Tuition assistance is available for families who demonstrate financial need by submitting an application to FACTS. The priority deadline to apply for tuition assistance is February 28, 2020. Applications submitted after that date will be reviewed and awards will be based on the amount of assistance funds remaining.
The application process for tuition assistance is separate from the admissions process. New families may begin the tuition assistance process before the official notification of their student's acceptance. However, families must first submit the school application and application fee and be accepted to Bishop Gorman before they will hear back from the Tuition Assistance Committee on their potential award. Returning families must reapply for tuition assistance through FACTS each year.
Bishop Gorman admits students of all racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds.
Bishop Gorman may use the following criteria in making admissions decisions:
- Current school record
- Standardized testing
- Student's academic potential
- Student's discipline record
- High School Placement Test (HSPT)
All students new to Bishop Gorman or seeking re-admission will be admitted on academic and disciplinary probation for one full semester. Any serious violation of the academic or discipline codes will be subject to a review by the school administration; the student may subsequently receive an extension of the probation or dismissal.
