Enrollment Timeline 

Choosing your child’s secondary education is an important decision. Throughout the school year, we host a variety of events on our campus to give you the information you need to make that decision. By attending these events, your family can get a better understanding of our faculty, staff, academics, athletics, and what it’s like to be a Baron. 

In order to better assist families during their transition from middle school to high school, we have included a timeline of events that SPCHS follows when considering applicants for the incoming Freshman class. However, applications can be filled out and submitted at any point before the December deadline. We encourage you to apply early to secure your seat.

September 1st, 2021- Applications for the class of 2026 are available! Click here to apply!

Scholarships will be awarded to the top scorers who completed the test on this day only.

Dec. 13th, 2021 - Decision letters will be mailed to students with applications submitted before Christmas break.


Families are still able to submit applications after Christmas, but applications will be considered on a rolling basis and may be placed on a wait list due to limited space in the cohort.
