Grades junior kindergarten, kindergarten, seven, and nine are the main points of entry into Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School. Applicants for grades 1 through 12 are asked to schedule a day to visit our classrooms and have an informal interview. Seventh and eighth grade applicants must register to take the SSAT, an entrance exam used by most of members of Independent Schools of St. Louis.

In accordance with St. Louis Archdiocesan policy, ninth grade applicants are not required to take an entrance exam but must complete the Catholic High School application form in addition to our application. The Catholic High School application form may be obtained from parish schools and PSR programs. If the student is not enrolled at a parish school or PSR program, please contact the Admissions Office in November to request the necessary forms.

New students will be admitted to other grades as space is available.
