2.  Once this initial paperwork is complete, please contact Ms. Gallagher to schedule and complete an admissions interview for both student and parent/guardian if they haven't already occurred.  These interviews are important because it allows the school to get to know the student and family...and allows the student and family an opportunity to have a discussion with teachers and administration from SBPS.

3.  It is important to also schedule a Shadow Day and spend a day at St. Benedict Prep.  This may also be scheduled through Ms. Gallagher.  Access the permission slip by clicking here.
