High School Admissions Guidelines
Enrollment in St. John Villa Academy HS is open to young women who have graduated from elementary school and who desire to pursue a secondary level, college-preparatory education within the Roman Catholic tradition. Application to Villa indicates on the part of the student and her family an acceptance of the obligations to explore one's personal religious commitment, to complete the required scholastic program and to support the goals, policies and financial programs of the school.

Initial acceptance is based on TACHS Scores and report card marks for grades 7 and 8. Class placement is determined by the TACHS entrance exam, elementary school grades, standardized test scores, and teacher recommendations. About 160 freshmen are accepted each year, the majority from CHOICE 1 which is completed on the TACHS Exam. All students take a college preparatory program.

• Annual expenses include tuition, uniforms, and a book fee.
