Application Details

Application

Students applying to Archbishop Williams High School must apply online.  Parents will need to create an account in order to submit their child's application.  Once the application is submitted, parents will be able to re-login and see the status of the application package (i.e., have all the necessary steps been completed and documented).      


Transcript & Discipline Form

All students for the 9th grade must submit our Transcript and Disciplinary Form. This form should be completed by the applicant's parent or guardian then given to the applicant's teacher, principal or guidance counselor. The school will complete the form and send it it directly to AWHS.


Testing

All students wishing to join the 9th grade class at Archbishop Williams are required to take the High School Placement Test.  The HSPT will be offered at Archbishop Williams High School on three Saturdays - November 4th and December 2nd.  To register, please click the button below.

HSPT Preparation

To help prepare and familiarize students with the HSPT, Archbishop Williams offers an HSPT Prep Course.  In this course, students will learn how these basic skills are tested on the HSPT. This course will also help students review the basic concepts, question types, and problem-solving techniques needed to improve scores. Practice tests will help students get used to the pace and timing of the tests. The course fee is $110, which includes a book. The courses will be held at Archbishop Williams. Click here to download the HSPT Prep Course Registration Form.
