Admissions Steps For Entering Freshmen

Step 1: Get to know us


Antonian offers a variety of ways to get to know about the school:


Admissions materials - Admissions materials are updated every year and are mailed to the families of candidates in late September of the candidate’s 8th-grade year. There is a lot of important information as well as pertinent dates contained in these mailings. The Catholic School Office of the Archdiocese of San Antonio provides a database to all Catholic high schools that contain current 8th-grade student contact information.  For students not attending an Archdiocesan school, please contact our Director of Admissions, Lisa Rosenfeld, at to be added to the mailing list.


Campus Tours - The best way to learn about Antonian is to visit the campus. Many 8th grade students from San Antonio Catholic middle schools will visit Antonian during a designated school day through tours arranged by their middle school. Parents are welcome and strongly encouraged to accompany their sons/daughters during these visits. Individual family tours are also available and can be scheduled through our Director of Admissions, Lisa Rosenfeld, at


Parent Information Night and Social - Each year, Antonian holds a Parent Information Night and Social for prospective parents of candidates, which includes a presentation by the administration as well as an opportunity for questions and answers.

Step 2: Submit an application for admission


All students seeking admission into Antonian must complete an application for admission. An application can be obtained from the Antonian website (click here) or by contacting the Director of Admissions, Lisa Rosenfeld, at


Step 3: Take the High School Placement Test (HSPT) at Antonian


All candidates seeking admission should take the High School Placement Test (HSPT). Candidates who submit a completed application for admission will be automatically registered to take the HSPT at Antonian. By agreement of the principals of all Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of San Antonio, candidates are encouraged to test at the high school of their first choice but are also able to send their HSPT scores to two additional high schools. Due to the expected number of students seeking admission into Antonian, we cannot assure admission to students who do not test at Antonian.  


Please note, Antonian offers HSPT merit scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $2,000 to all candidates who test at Antonian and score in the 90th percentile or higher on the High School Placement Test.  This HSPT scholarship is renewable annually as long as the student remains in the top of his/her class and maintains a clean disciplinary record.


Candidates seeking admissions into Antonian who are not able to test on Saturday, December 14, 2019, or the alternate date of January 11, 2020, please contact the Director of Admissions, Lisa Rosenfeld, at to make alternate arrangements.

Step 4: Be interviewed by Antonian staff


All candidates seeking admission will be interviewed by a member of the Antonian staff.  Interviews are scheduled by the Director of Admissions upon receipt of a completed application for admission and after the completion of the High School Placement Test.  Interviews are generally brief (10 to 15 minutes) and are a means of gaining more information about the candidate.


Class of 2024 applicant interviews will be scheduled for January 13, 14, 15, 21, 22, and 23, 2020. 


Step 5: Receive decision letter


All candidates seeking admission should take the High School Placement Test (HSPT). All candidates who have submitted a complete application for admission, have taken the HSPT, have participated in an interview, and for whom Antonian is able to receive transcript materials from his/her respective middle school, will be sent a decision letter by mail.  These letters are mailed on February 7, 2020. Candidates who receive an affirmative decision are asked to complete enrollment paperwork by Friday, February 21, 2020 (tentative). Antonian will continue to accept applications for the 2020-2021 school year beyond the first round of decisions.
