Badin Admissions


Badin High School is a comprehensive secondary co-ed Catholic high school. If you are interested in attending Badin High School, we are interested in having you here! Though Badin is 85% Catholic, we certainly welcome all faiths.

We encourage 8th grade students to "shadow" a Badin student to learn more about the Badin environment. What a great way to see what life at Badin is really like! Your son/daughter will receive personal attention as she/he attends class and eats lunch with a Badin student ambassador. A lunch voucher good for $4 will be given to a visiting student. To schedule a shadow day, please contact the Admissions Office (x120) or email info@BadinHS.org. At least two days notice is requested. Shadow students do not need to wear a school uniform but are asked to dress ‘comfortable casual’ by wearing blue jeans (no holes please) and a polo; gym shoes are permitted. We also conduct individual campus tours for parents and their students at your request.

Eighth-grade students interested in attending Badin will take a 3-hour High School Placement Test (HSPT) on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. It is considered an admissions and placement test, because there may be a Waiting List for admission to Badin in any given year. The HSPT helps us determine placement in the appropriate levels of English and Math. Badin offers various academic opportunities to meet the needs of our students and welcomes all academic levels, which include: Honors, Advanced College Prep and College Prep, as well as Advanced Placement courses. There are academic scholarships available for students who score particularly well on the HSPT. Badin uses the High School Placement Test to determine the appropriate levels for student placement.

We invite you to Badin’s new streamlined admissions process, which allows you to request more information about Badin, request a Shadow Day, register for the HSPT, have access to the Badin application for admission and registration paperwork.
