All students in the 8th grade are welcome and encouraged to take the Pope John Paul II Scholarship Test. Two test dates have been selected. They are Saturday, October 1st at 8AM and Tuesday, October 4th at 4PM.
A new practice at PJP is to award merit scholarships based on three factors. First is the students scores on the 8th grade scholarship test. Second, is the students final 7th grade grades. And third, is some evidence that the student has performed community service.
To sign up for the PJP Merit Scholarship Test go to the 8th Grade and Transfer Information page under the Admissions Tab of the PJP web site. The deadline to sign up is Monday, September 26th.
Pope John Paul II does accept scholarship tests that are taken at one of the other fifteen Archdiocese of Philadelphia secondary schools.
