Admission Process


Step 1: Take the Entrance Exam

  • Incoming freshmen are requested to take the Resurrection College Prep High School Entrance Exam in order to be considered for admission. This exam is for 8th grade students only. Pre-registration for the entrance exam is available here.  

  • Date and Time: Saturday, December 1 , 2018, 7:45 a.m. – noon.

  • Exam fee is $25 (cash or check, online registrants may pay via credit card), bring two #2 pencils, no calculators.

  • Potential students who take the Entrance Exam at a different Chicago Archdiocese high school may have those exam scores sent to Resurrection for consideration in acceptance and placement.  By taking the exam elsewhere, these potential students may experience delays in notifications, depending on when the exam scores are transferred to Resurrection.
