Admission Process


St. Benedict at Auburndale welcomes all candidates regardless of race, color or national origin.


HOW TO APPLY TO SBA:

For rising freshmen applying to attend high school at SBA: 

  1. Apply online at sbaeagles.org, or download, complete and return the Application for Admission and the Transcript Request forms at sbaeagles.org/admissionsforms. 
  2. Submit the $75 non-refundable application fee. 
  3. Submit the following required records*: 
    • A copy of the student’s most recent report card  
    • A copy of the student’s most recent standardized test scores (e.g., ITBS, TCAP, PLAN, PSAT, or ACT)  
    • A copy of the student’s birth certificate and immunization records   
  •  PLUS Applicants only - in addition to the above items  
    • A copy of the student’s most recent psychological evaluation documenting a learning difference. This evaluation should be no more than three years old. 

4.  All rising freshmen applying for admission must take the High School Placement Test (HSPT). Pre-registration and testing fees are included in the cost of the Application for Admission, and the test is typically given during the first weekend of December.       

5. Prior to acceptance, entering freshmen and their parents will meet with a member of the Admissions Committee.   

St. Benedict’s application priority deadline for incoming freshmen is December 1, 2016.   

*Students who attend a local Catholic elementary school do not need to submit a copy of their report card and standardized test scores. They need only submit a copy of their birth certificate, immunization records and, if necessary, a psychological evaluation. The Admissions Office will request the student’s report card and standardized test scores at the end of the first semester.   

For transfer students applying to SBA*: 

Transfer admission for incoming sophomore or junior applicants is considered based on the student’s enrollment at an accredited school, his/her academic records (including enrollment in college preparatory classes), and discipline and attendance records. Transfer students are accepted based on space availability, and SBA adheres to TSSAA transfer eligibility rules for student-athletes.   

* Upcoming seniors are not normally considered for transfer into SBA; however, exceptions are made for those families moving to the Memphis metropolitan area. Please contact the Admissions Office in regard to your family situation.   

  1. Apply online at sbaeagles.com, or download, complete and return the Application for Admission and Transcript Request forms found at     sbaeagles.org/admissionsforms.

  3. Submit the following required records:

5. Prior to acceptance to SBA, sophomore and junior candidates and their parents will meet with a member of the Admissions Committee.    

St. Benedict’s application priority deadline for incoming sophomores and juniors is February 1, 2017.

The Admissions Committee will review the files of all applicants who have submitted their required documentation by the priority deadline. Acceptance letters will be mailed by mid-February to incoming SBA freshmen. Transfer students will receive their acceptance letters in late February or early March.   

All applications received after the priority deadline will be reviewed and acceptance letters will be mailed mid-March, based on space availability.

Please note: SBA is unable to admit students who have outstanding financial obligations with any other school.
