Attention Class of 2019! There will be many opportunities for you to learn more about PJP this fall and in the school year to come. PJP will host a Fall Open House on Sunday, October 5th from 12:30 - 3:00 p.m. All are welcome. The Class of 2019 Scholarship Test will be offered on Saturday, October 11th from 9:00 a.m. - 12 noon, and additional testing dates will be held on Monday, October 13th from 4:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. and Monday, October 20th from 4:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. A Scholarship Test Registration Form link is available to the right. Eighth Grade Visitation Day will be held at PJP on Thursday, November 13th from 8:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Students at the parish and regional schools in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia will learn more about this event and sign up with their eighth grade homeroom teachers. Eighth grade students who attend public and private schools are asked to sign up for this event with our Director of Admissions, Ms. Callen, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Beginning in mid-October, parents may sign their children up for individual "Shadow Days", so that the eighth graders may spend a day with one of the freshman students at PJP. This will give future students a better understanding of what a typical day is like at PJP. Throughout the fall, representatives from PJP, including current students, will visit many of the parish and regional partner schools for school-day presentations and community-wide High School Information Nights. We encourage you to attend events at PJP throughout the year - drama productions, art shows, athletic competitions, games and tournaments! Please check back to pjphs.org and the school calendar (link to the right) regularly for all the latest news and upcoming events. We look forward to answering your questions about the high school selection and admissions process, and we are excited to get to know you and your family as the year progresses!
