Orchard Lake St. Mary’s Preparatory seeks deserving young men who can benefit from and contribute to our school community in a multitude of ways. We request true gentlemen who have a strong desire to grow and expand their faith, intelligence, and personal attributes. While grades and test scores are important, they only tell part of an applicant’s story. Our Dean of Admissions takes great pride in getting to know our prospective students and their families and uses a holistic approach when accepting students to St. Mary’s Prep- every applicant is reviewed as a unique individual.
The 3 Step Admissions Process
Shadow at St. Mary’s Preparatory
Spend a day with a current 9th grader by observing a day in the life of a man of Orchard Lake. You will be paired up with a current 9th grade student (you can request a specific student or one who shares your similar interests). You will arrive at our Admissions Center at 7:15 am where your host will be there to greet you. You will then spend the academic day with him, and will be picked up from the Admissions Center at 2:00pm.
Submit Your Application
Applications are accepted beginning October 1, 2016. To apply for admissions, families need to complete the online application. Acceptance letters will begin to be mailed on January 27, 2017. St. Mary’s Preparatory is rolling admissions, but we do encourage the admissions process to begin early as enrollment may be capped.

The High School Placement Test (HSPT) is offered four times during the 2016-2017 school year: November 19th , December 3rd , February 4th , and March 4th . The cost of the exam is $40.
