Admission Process

Acceptance into the Learning for Success Program is based on the Independent School Entrance Exam scores, students’ current formal psycho-educational evaluation, and recommendations. If more information is needed, an interview will also be scheduled. Decision letters for the program will be included in admissions decision packets.

Please apply early! Enrollment in the Learning for Success Program is limited.

Evaluation Requirements

To be considered for the Learning for Success Program, families must provide us with a recent psychoeducational evaluation that is no more than three years old. We accept evaluations from qualified examiners, including the following:

  • Clinical and counseling psychologists
  • Educational and school psychologists
  • Neuropsychologists
  • Specialists in learning differences

You may also use professionals who are qualified to assess learning differences but not on this list. If you do, their formal psychoeducational evaluation of your student must include the training and experience that qualifies them to conduct these assessments.

The evaluation must include these five things (you’ll find a detailed description of each one below):

  • A thorough diagnostic interview
  • An IQ battery
  • Achievement testing
  • Information processing testing
  • Diagnosis

After submitting your general St. Pius X High School application, we will contact families who wish to be considered for the Learning for Success Program and request for the required psychoeducational evaluation (no more than three years old) and any accommodations plan implemented by your child’s school. Documents may be emailed to our enrollment management office at after applying for admission.
