BMHS Admission Policies

The Admission Board implements the admissions policy of the school. This policy is con­sistent with the school's philosophy. We seek students

• who can succeed in and benefit from the curriculum

• who are able to meet the financial and service obligations required by the school

• whose lives, behavior, and educational goals are in alignment with the philosophy, goals and objectives of the school

• who have demonstrated a desire to attend the school

Priority is given to students from Catholic feeder schools in the geographic area which we serve. Catholic students in non-parochial schools are given second priority. Non-Catholic students who have siblings in the school are the third priority, followed by non-Catholic students from Catholic or Christian schools.
