Apply to Holy Cross
"Girl power to me means being brave enough to take that first step and to speak out and be yourself." -Katherine McNamara
The Holy Cross Admissions office is ready to help you at any step in the application process. If you have any questions along the way, don't hesitate to ask.
The Academy of the Holy Cross requires the High School Placement Test (HSPT) for admission.
For students currently enrolled in Catholic elementary schools, the test will be administered at your school. You need to choose Academy of the Holy Cross as one of your choices for us to receive your scores.
For students NOT currently enrolled in Catholic elementary schools, please register to take the HSPT in December. You may register, starting in October, with the Archdiocese of Washington Catholic Schools Office online or by phone at (301) 853-5387.
