Before Applying

8th grade students should take the TACHS Admissions Examination, indicating Nazareth Regional HS (Code 006) as their first, second, or third choice. For class scheduling purposes, applicants must also provide their 6th, 7th, and 8th grade and standardized test scores for review.

Nazareth RHS offers a TACHS preparatory course for this exam over a five-week Saturday morning schedule, preceding the examination in November, at a nominal fee. Please contact Ms. Hamilton at (718) 763-1100 ext. 227 for test prep information.

Open Admissions

Nazareth has an Open Enrollment period in the spring.  For more information or to set up an interview, call Ms. Hamilton on ext. 227.

Transfers

An interview appointment must be made with the Director of Admissions; a parent/guardian must attend this meeting. Transfer students must present a school transcript, last report card, a letter of recommendation and a discipline report when attending this meeting. Kindly call (718) 763-1100 ext. 227.

Scholarships

Scholarship opportunities are available to incoming freshman only.  Nazareth offers scholarships based on the student’s TACHS exam results and middle school achievements. If a student did not take the TACHS test, he/she can register to take Nazareth’s Private Scholarship exam (test date TBD). The fee for the exam is $50. The student must register for the exam and bring their middle school grades (6th, 7th, and 8th grade) to be considered for a scholarship.

The Nazareth Catholic High School Scholarship Program (also known as “NAZ CARES”) was initiated to aid Catholic elementary school students who wish to attend Catholic high school, but lack the financial means to do so.  The Principal at the Catholic middle school will nominate one student per year.

Open House

Open Houses are going to be held on October 19th and 26th from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM and October 28th from 12:00 – 2:00.  Students are also invited to schedule and attend a “Buddy Day”. During a Buddy Day, you will be paired up with a current Nazareth student who will walk you through a day in the life of a high school student.  Please contact Ms. Hamilton in the Admissions Office at 718-763-1100 ext. 227 to find our more information.
