  • Applying for Freshmen Year

      We want good young men at CC, so our application process is designed to let us get to know each applicant as well as we can.
      • Incoming 9th grade students should apply after their first marking period of 8th grade.
      • Applications are generally accepted between October and mid June for the following school year.
      • Initial acceptance decisions will be sent out on the 4th Friday in January, after which decisions will be made on a rolling basis through June.
      • Students applying for 9th grade are required to complete the High School Placement Test and the application checklist found in your myCC account.
    • High School Placement Test

      • Normally, the High School Placement Test (HSPT) is required for all incoming freshmen at Detroit Catholic Central High School. In light of the COVID-19 changes to the school calendar and ability to meet in groups, we have temporarily suspended the HSPT as a requirement for incoming freshmen. Other standardized test scores will be used in place of the HSPT for placement purposes.
    • High School Placement Test Prep Classes

      • The CC HSPT Prep Course is meant to introduce the students to the HSPT and focuses on the Math, and English portions of the test, and also includes general test taking skills. The course will conclude with a scored practice test, and students will leave with a study book.
      • Cost for the Prep Course is $45/student, and space is limited to the first 100 students to sign up for the session. Students should only sign up for one session.
      • Prep Classes are only offered for the fall HSPT dates. Register by clicking on the event at the bottom of this page.
    • Other Placement Tests

      • CC mainly uses the composite score and national percentiles from the Reading, Math, and Language sections of the HSPT. These scores allow CC to initially place students into classes for their freshman year (honors, regular, basic) or identify students who might need additional support during the summer.
      • CC offers additional subject placement exams for math and foreign language in the spring to better place students when necessary.
    • Transfer Opportunities

      • Detroit Catholic Central High School accepts transfer students at the start of each semester, but does not accept students going into their senior year of high school unless there is a rare circumstance.
      • The academic rigor of CC is typically more demanding than other schools, so it is important that the student is placed correctly coming in. Meetings, transcripts, and course descriptions help in this effort.
      • Transfer applicants do not need to take the HSPT, but need to provide the following:
        • Current High School Transcript, with GPA above 2.5
        • Discipline and Attendance History
        • Complete Application
        • Essay about why they would like to attend CC (250-500 words)
        • Interview
