Welcome Applicants

Flintridge Sacred Heart welcomes day and boarding applicants with a variety of talents, interests and perspectives. We seek students who are motivated and enthusiastic about learning, and who will contribute to and benefit from the stimulating academic environment offered.

Test Optional Policy

In response to current disruptions, test dates and future test availability brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, Flintridge Sacred Heart has committed to a test optional policy during the 2021-2022 admission cycle. In addition, Flintridge Sacred Heart will not be hosting the HSPT or ISEE testing on our campus.

Students who are unable to submit standardized test results, or who choose not to, will not be disadvantaged in our selection process. This test optional policy aligns with our holistic admissions review process. With an emphasis on student equity and access, our admissions committee will place greater focus on all other required documents including academic achievement,curriculum, rigor of coursework, essay, recommendations and involvement beyond the classroom. 

In this unprecedented time, we hope this news will help relieve some of the stress and concerns that goes along with an already stressful process for many students and families.
