Admission to Hoban

Admission to Hoban is open to applicants who have indicated their ability to follow the course of studies provided by this school and whose conduct has been such as to recommend them. Before acceptance, the school requests academic records, standardized test scores and teacher recommendations from schools of current or previous attendance. If a student seeks to transfer into Hoban from a local high school, the student must submit a letter to the director of admissions explaining the reasons for seeking the transfer. Current transcripts, attendance records and disciplinary records must be presented. The admissions review board will consider the request.

A placement examination required for incoming freshmen is conducted through Scholastic Testing Service. A follow-up conference with the admissions review board may be held after academic records have been reviewed and placement recommendations made.

Transfer students enter with a probationary status. Transfer students from local high schools are generally not admitted into the senior year.

Hoban does not discriminate on the basis of age, color, disability, gender, national or ethnic origin, race, religion, sexual orientation or socio-economic status in the administration of its policies and programs.

Hoban's mission statement reminds us that we are a Catholic high school in the Holy Cross tradition.  This describes both who we are and what we do.

The Holy Cross tradition is a balanced, integrated, holistic approach to education where knowledge and faith converge.

A Holy Cross education fosters the values, attitudes and behaviors necessary for individuals to make a real difference in the world. Students are challenged to live up to the ideals of the Catholic faith through a four-year program of religious studies, as well as sacramental opportunities, retreats and Christian service

Following the Holy Cross model of education grounded in values, the Hoban athletic philosophy emphasizes important lifelong lessons that transcend the playing field. Balance is a primary value for Hoban athletics. Students are first scholars, then athletes.

For almost 60 years, alumni, parents and friends have responded generously to the various fundraising programs at Hoban. Fundraising is especially important because as a private institution Hoban does not receive general public funding or diocesan subsidies. Tuition alone does not cover the cost of operating.

The student services office is committed to helping students find their place in the Hoban community and to prepare them in heart and mind to live out the Holy Cross mission. We provide a comprehensive guidance program designed to meet the academic, personal, college and career exploration needs of students.
