Below is the information for the 2013-14 admissions calendar year. Please note, we will not begin accepting applications until July 8, 2013 for the Class of 2018. These dates are published for your planning purposes.
Please review the priority placement policy as we are expecting a full freshmen class. Priority for admissions is as follows:
We will begin accepting applications July 8,2013. Applications will be numbered as they are received in each of the priority placement categories. Each application must be accompanied by a non-refundable, $250, tuition deposit unless the family is applying for financial aid*. The priority placement deadline is December 13, 2013. After that date, if there are any open spaces remaining, applications will be taken on a first come, first served basis. You do not need to have all of your letters of recommendation and your educational portfolio together to submit an application.
*The $250 non-refundable tuition deposit will be waived for any family applying for financial aid. Anyone taking advantage of the tuition deposit waiver must complete his or her financial aid application (which will still need the 2012 W-2 information to be submitted by February 15, 2014) by December 13, 2012. If the admission application is submitted after December 13, 2013, the financial aid application must be completed within one week of the admission application.
Once the application form and tuition deposit are received you will have officially applied for Guerin Catholic. You will however, need to complete the Educational Portfolio, Letters of Recommendation and placement test to be considered for admission.
A shadow day is an opportunity for an eighth grade student to be a Golden Eagle for the day. You will attend classes, meet other students and teachers, eat lunch in our cafeteria and experience High school life at Guerin Catholic first-hand. Visit our website to set up your Golden Eagle Day.
Copies of Grades and standardized test scores from the 6th and 7th Grade (Standardized tests include, but are not limited to, the ISTEP and Iowa tests).
Copies of the student’s report cards and standardized tests for the 8th grade can be submitted as they become available.
Three letters of recommendation are required. One of the letters must be from one of your child’s current teachers, the other two can be from teachers, coaches, youth group leaders or other non-related adult that works with your child on a regular basis. Copies of the recommendation form are available on our website.

If there are any remaining openings after this date, we will continue to accept applications until each class is full. The spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
You will be contacted in February 2014 to schedule an interview with the Guidance Department. Meetings of parents/guardians, students, and our Guidance Counselor will begin to take place beginning February 2014. This interview will allow school personnel to meet your student and to help guide your student in making sound decisions regarding his/her academic career at Saint Theodore Guerin High School. The student’s schedule requests will be considered complete only with the approval of the counselor and signature of the parent/guardian.
You will receive an invoice from the business office in February - March 2014. A non-refundable tuition deposit of $750 and a payment plan agreement will be due by March 15, 2014 and is required to finalize the enrollment process. You will not receive a copy of your final schedule until this $750 is paid. You will be asked to indicate your method of payment:
