How to Apply

Fordham Prep seeks students who share the philosophy of the school, are able and willing to do college preparatory work, are open to learning and new experiences, and are enthusiastic about a Jesuit education.

Admission is based solely on past academic performance and standardized test scores. 

1. Complete Application 

        • You will be asked to create an InfoSnap account using a valid email address.  No codes are required.
        • A confirmation email is automatically generated once an application is submitted.
        • ***Fordham Prep does not require applicants to submit recommendations or essays.***

    2. Submit Grades

        • Applicants must submit a copy of their final report card from seventh grade and the first marking period of eighth grade to the Admissions Office.
        • If an applicant attends a Catholic grammar school in the Archdiocese of New York or Diocese of Brooklyn and will take the TACHS exam, his school will send his grades to each of his three high school choices.  
        • If you attend a public or private grammar school, please request that your current school send copies of your report cards to Fordham Prep's Admissions Office using our Transcript Release Form.

    3. Take Entrance Exam 

        • Fordham Prep accepts results from several entrance exams, including the TACHS, CO-OP, ISEE, STS, CHSEE, HSPT, and SSAT. 
        • Please note that for exams OTHER than the TACHS, you may fax, email, or mail your score sheet to the Admissions Department. 
        • If you are taking the TACHS, please list Fordham Prep as one of your three choices. It does not matter where you list Fordham Prep; any of the three choices is acceptable and has no bearing on admission, scholarship or financial aid.
        • Fordham Prep's TACHS and CHSEE code is 113. 
        • For more information on the TACHS please visit


    Please contact the Admissions Office if you have any questions.


At this time Fordham Prep is NOT accepting transfer applications for the fall of 2018.
