ADMISSIONS FOR SY 2023-2024

ST. SCHOLASTICA'S ACADEMY OF MARIKINA admits students who are Catholics and whose academic records indicate the ability to do quality work and possess character traits that give the promise to be active participants in the Scholastican Community. Non-Catholics whose parents are willing to form their children in the Catholic Benedictine Education are welcome. Thus, the Committee on Admission deliberates on the academic requirements presented, the result of written examinations given by the Student Development Center, and the interview with the principal and/or Academic Coordinator (for high school applicants), Kindergarten teacher (for Nursery applicants) and guidance counselor (for the grade school applicants). All students seeking admission, whether coming from sister schools or others and/or returning as former students who have enrolled elsewhere during the school year, are required to take the Entrance Test – ORAL and WRITTEN. Successful applicants are admitted on a first-come-first-served basis.
