A: Incoming 9th graders are not at a disadvantage and go through the same admissions process as incoming 8th graders, but every 8th grader will receive at least 3 1/2 high school credits and will, therefore, be eligible for additional courses/electives prior to graduation.
A: Students are scheduled year-to-year based on individual needs. Students can be in both honors classes and academic classes during the same school year. Brother Martin offers a college prep curriculum in three levels of classes: Advanced Placement, Honors, and Academic. We do not offer remedial classes.
A: Students applying for 8th & 9th grades are required to attend Application Day at their selected high school on Saturday, January 9, 2021. A $30.00 onetime, non-refundable, non-transferable application fee will be collected from each student upon arrival at the high school. Application Day at all high schools will begin at 8 a.m. Brother Martin does not use the results of these tests for the acceptance or non-acceptance of applicants but rather to help with the academic placement of each applicant for the upcoming school year. The results will also be used in consideration for academic scholarships.
A: Yes. Any student who applies to Brother Martin has also applied for an academic scholarship; there is not a separate scholarship application. The criteria for scholarship eligibility includes: elementary school grades, standardized test scores, record of conduct, and a composite score earned on the placement test administered at Brother Martin. The Scholarship Committee meets after students have completed the high school application process.
A: Yes. Financial assistance is based on need and is in the form of Work Study/Grant. Financial assistance applies to tuition only, not to registration fees. Financial assistance is discussed only after a student is accepted into Brother Martin, not during the admissions process.
