Apply to Attend 9th Grade
Little Flower Catholic High School for girls is the most iconic all-girls school in Philadelphia and the best return on investment in single sex education in Southeastern Pennsylvania. For 80 years, it has delivered on a promise to make students faith-filled, independent, and college and career ready. Located in a pristinely kept facility at the southern tip of Hunting Park in North Philadelphia, Little Flower boasts the highest parent satisfaction and student retention among the 17 Diocesan High Schools. Additionally, her alumnae base, 36,000 strong, are the most loyal and generous among the other Catholic high schools, both urban and suburban, making the legendary Little Flower sisterhood the envy of all.
Steps in the Application Process:
Fill out the Application Form online by establishing an account in the SchoolAdmin portal.
Register to take the High School Placement Test (HSPT), which provides the basis for both academic merit scholarship awards and academic placement upon enrollment. NOTE: The test is FREE for all students who take it at Little Flower. Only students who sit for the test at Little Flower will be eligible for academic merit awards at Little Flower.
We encourage all applicants to take this test and register in advance. All Little Flower Academic Merit Awards are based on the results of students who took the HSPT test at Little Flower.
Little Flower will administer the HSPT to 8th graders on the dates listed below. We encourage families to register their daughters for this test online, though walk-ins will not be turned away. There is no registration fee for the test if it is taken at Little Flower.
If you do not wish to attend the Information session, we ask that parents arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the end of testing to retrieve your child.
All students will receive a letter with their test results from Little Flower.
In order to be eligible for Little Flower Academic Merit Aid, you must take the scholarship exam at LF.
