Thank you for visiting our Class of 2027 informational page. Whether this is your first time navigating through the high school admissions process or you’ve had experience in the past, we hope this page provides insightful information as you prepare for the next steps in your son’s educational journey.
The first required step in Mount Carmel's admissions process is taking our entrance exam. This year’s exam will take place on Saturday, December 3, 2022, at 8 A.M. and is only open to current 8th-grade students. All Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of Chicago will administer the entrance exam on this date. Students can take the exam at only one Catholic high school.
Online pre-registration for our entrance exam will begin on Saturday, November 12, 2022. The testing fee is $25 and will be paid online before submitting the completed registration form.
Although we highly encourage students to register in advance, walk-in registration will be accepted on the day of the exam. Computers will be available onsite to register.
