*Due to COVID-19 concerns, the Archdiocese of Cincinnati has waived the 2020 high school entrance and placement test for current 8th grade students; therefore, the test will not be offered this year. Mercy McAuley will review students' elementary school records, including standardized test scores and report cards, along with the Admissions Application and essays, as part of the admissions process.
