Acceptance to TG

Acceptance to TG occurs after review by the admissions committee of the completed application file and HSPT scores. The deadline for priority acceptance and scholarship application is January 19, 2019.

Students who have all materials in by January 19 will have their admissions decisions sent the week of February 4, 2019 and scholarship award notifications will begin.  

Starting February 4, 2019, students accepted under priority acceptance will be the first students invited to enroll into the class of 2023 and will be the first to select classes. Families who enroll by midnight on February 18, 2019, will receive $50 off the $300 enrollment fee.

Totino-Grace seeks to serve the needs of students with a wide range of abilities.  Through our Learning Lab and other programs, we are able to accommodate most students who have special learning needs.  However, when students score very low on the HSPT or have other needs which require accommodations, we will review their needs and determine whether Totino-Grace can provide a successful academic experience.  If Totino-Grace determines it cannot provide the necessary programs for a student, we will refund the enrollment fee and deny admission.
