Admissions Decisions Admissions decisions are based on a combination of factors and vary from year to year depending on the number of applicants and their academic profiles.
Decisions are made by the Admissions Committee, which is comprised of a mixture of Seton's administrators, admissions officers, and guidance counselors. In general, a student's grades, standardized test results, attendance record, teacher recommendations, and essay responses are carefully considered.
Students who are strong in all of these areas will also be invited for a personal interview.
When evaluating transfer applicants, the Admissions Committee must also review the curricular sequencing of the student's current high school and whether the classes already taken are compatible with Seton's curriculum and graduation requirements.
