  3. Timing: Check-In will open at 7:15AM in the gym. It is very important that you arrive no later than 7:50AM. Please enter through the front or back entrance of St Joes located at 2320 Huntington Tpke in Trumbull. The exam will begin at 8:00AM and will end around 11:30AM (extended time ends at 12:40PM).
  4. What to Bring: Students are asked to bring a few sharpened #2 pencils. Students are not allowed calculators. Students may bring a light snack and water to have during their scheduled break. Dress is casual and students will be dismissed to the main entrance upon finishing their exam.
  5. Admissions Presentation & Administration Meet-N-Greet: Join us for a casual admission presentation and "Q&A" starting at 8:00AM in the media center! Check the status of your application, set up a shadow visit, or just enjoy light refreshments with our administration and admissions staff!

Can You Keep Up With Our Cadets?
There is never a shortage of good news at SJ! Last week alone, we congratulated the newest SJ Cadets to join the National Honor Society, celebrated Spirit Week, and raised over $30,000 at our Walk-a-Thon. This week we will host Career Day for Junior and Senior students featuring guest speakers from a multitude of public and private industries who will offer advice and networking tips to students in breakout sessions and a round-table lunch.

We can’t wait to see what talents and achievements you will bring to our community next year. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook to see Spirit Week take over our Campus!
