During any given school year, Padua is home to Pandas representing 4 states and numerous countries. The best way to learn more about your daughter's future at Padua is to schedule a Shadow Visit Day for your 8th Grader. This year's Open House took place on September 26 but if you missed the big event, please contact Mrs. Shana Rossi about scheduling a time for your family to visit us on Broom Street!
Admission to Padua Academy is based on a metric that includes, but is not limited to, a student's performance on the High School Placement Test and her elementary school record. Deadline to apply is December 1, 2021.
There's no better way to learn more about what it's like to be a Panda than by scheduling a Shadow Visit Day.
Padua's Shadow Visit Days allow prospective 8th Graders to "Be a Panda for a Day." Mrs. Rossi pairs 8th Graders with a Padua student who shares their academic and extracurricular interests. Visitors spend an entire day with their assigned Padua student(s), giving them a hands-on experience of what high school here on Broom Street is really like!
Padua Academy also offers a course to help 8th Grade girls better prepare for the High School Placement Test (HSPT), lessen any anxiety they may have about taking the HSPT, and learn effective test-taking skills and strategies. Unfortunately the deadline has closed to register for this year's Prep Course, taking place Oct. 16 and 30.
HOWEVER, registration for the High School Placement Test is still open AND, only one month away!
