Students Attending a Brooklyn/Diocesan Parochial School

Students attending a parochial school in the Diocese of Brooklyn/Queens that took the TACHS do not need to upload their 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade report cards or standardized test results; diocesan elementary schools will provide a completed TACHS Applicant Record with this required information on their student’s behalf to Holy Cross.

However, parents/guardians are responsible for uploading letters of recommendation, as well as any other requested documentation, such as a student’s IEP or 504 plan, to the Admissions Portal.

Parents/Guardians of students attending an NYC public school or a parochial school in the Diocese of Rockville Centre are responsible for uploading their 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade report cards to the Admissions Portal.

After an online application has been reviewed by a member of the Admissions Department, families can log in to the Admissions Portal and upload any requested documentation needed to complete a student’s application.

Parents/Guardians of students applying to Holy Cross are also responsible for supplying letters of recommendation and any other requested documentation, such as a student’s IEP or 504 plan.

Admissions Decisions

Holy Cross High School will share admissions decisions on January 11, 2023; please be aware that this is the earliest date a family may be notified of admissions by any catholic high school.
