Admission to Belen Jesuit is selective and limited to grades 6 through 9. Scores on the entrance examination, school records (and in certain situations an interview) are all used to determine admissions. The application process begins in October. On Saturday, October 13, 2012 our annual Open House will be held at 10:00 a.m. for public school students and at 2:00 p.m. for parochial and private school students.
This school is authorized under Federal law to enroll nonimmigrant alien students. Click here for more information on SEVIS.
NOTICE regarding students applying from archdiocesE OF MIAMI SCHOOLs
By mutual agreement between Belen Jesuit and the Archdiocese of Miami, the number of students transferring to Belen Jesuit from an Archdiocesan Miami elementary school is limited to two students per fifth grade homeroom. (For example, parish school X has two fifth-grade homerooms. No more than four students may be accepted. Acceptances are not based on homeroom assignment.) The number of fifth grade homerooms varies from school to school and from year to year. This policy makes admission to Belen Jesuit highly competitive. The Admissions Committee looks at many factors including but not limited to, entrance exam scores, grades, conduct, and a writing sample. In addition, as part of our agreement, no student may transfer from an Archdiocese of Miami school into the seventh or eighth grades.
