9th Grade Admissions

Finalized Guidance on HS screening: 


Students' highest grades in four courses—English, math, social studies, and science––will be used. To determine which grades to use, we will choose the highest grade in each of these courses, from the following:  


·         Final course grades from seventh grade 

·         Marking period or end-of-term grades from eighth grade that are available by the high school application deadline.   


Because a variety of grading scales are used across schools, each course grade being used for admissions will be converted to 100-400 points. Then, these converted grades will be averaged to assign each applicant a point average.  


Applicants will be divided into four groups according to their point average, with applicants with the highest averages forming Group 1. At screened programs, applicants from Group 1 will be admitted first, followed by applicants from Group 2 and so on.

Last year's virtual open house has been uploaded to the main Admissions page on this website. Please feel free to view our orientation videos also at the bottom of the Admissions page to learn about BSGE.

Attendance is not taken at Open House events and is not a factor in admissions. When the building is open (pre and post-COVID restrictions) each Open House includes a self-guided building walk and a brief overview of our instructional program. Our Open House dates are usually held in the month of October. 

No reservations are required.
