Admissions Test for Brooklyn Catholic High Schools

It is early September, 2014, and the important Student Handbook for taking the entrance examination to Catholic High Schools (for admission in September, 2015) has been released at 

Look for the word "Handbook" on in the left column on that page.  In this extensive handbook, among the many pageas of information, I find page 25 most helpful because it tells the approximate admissions number and tuition for each Catholic high school in Brooklyn.  These pages also list the Open House dates.  Some charts in this Handbook are turned vertical.  I suggest that these pages be printed in portrait, so you can read the printed page more easily.  

The nine Catholic high schools in the borough of Brooklyn are listed below, with approximate enrollment figures:

Saint Saviour High School, Park Slope, enrollment about 240 girls.
St. Joseph High School, Willoughby and Bridge Sts., enrollment about 300 girls.
Nazareth Regional High School, East Flatbush, enrollment about 250 students.
Fontbonne Hall Academy, Bay Ridge, enrollment about 485 girls.
Bishop Kearney High School, Borough Park, enrollment about 450 girls.
St. Edmund Prep, Midwood, enrollment about 750 students.
Bishop Loughlin High School, Clinton Hill / Fort Greene.
Xaverian High School, Bay Ridge, enrollment about 1,100 in grades 6-12.  On the website, note the "rumor" about Xaverian becoming coed on the high school level.
Cristo Rey Brooklyn High School, 710 East 37th Street, East Flatbush.  Please read the website, as Cristo Rey is a very different type of Catholic high school.
It would be commendable if each school reported on its website the grade-by-grade enrollment. The approximate admissions total 1,225 for Brooklyn.
Each school lists an Open House date before the November 8th exam.  Also, note that there is a two-hour session at 180 Remsen Street (near Borough Hall) 6 p.m. Monday, September 22nd, for learning about the high schools.
