How can parents assist in the recruitment process?

Most importantly, parents can help by introducing families to our community.  Bring them to Collegeville to meet our students, faculty and staff and to enjoy the distinctive architecture and beautiful scenery.  High school juniors and seniors are encouraged to visit when classes are in session and to arrange a formal visit with the admission staff.  To arrange a visit for male students, call 800:245-6467 or locally at 363-2196; female students, call 800:544-1489 or locally 363-5308.

Parents are also encouraged to refer prospective students to the Office of Admission.  Ideally, these referrals will be made for high school sophomores and juniors.  To enable the admission staff to follow-up in the appropriate manner, student referrals should include as much of the following information as possible:

  • Student’s full name
  • Home address/phone
  • Name and location of high school/year of high school graduation
  • Academic and extracurricular interests
  • Grade point average/ACT or SAT (general ranges/percentiles)
  • Names of other colleges student is considering

Referrals may be made by calling the number above or mailing information to Office of Admission, P.O. Box 7155, Collegeville, MN.  56321-7155.

What is the academic profile for likely success at CSB/SJU?

The Admission Committee recommends the following high school profile:

  • Four years of English
  • Three years of math (through Algebra II)
  • Two years of laboratory science
  • Two years of social science
  • Six other college prep courses (foreign language is not required but strongly recommended)

In addition to a solid college preparatory curriculum, the committee carefully reviews a student’s cumulative grade point average, college entrance test scores (ACT or SAT), high school rank, and writing skills - as demonstrated in a personal statement - leadership commitments and service experiences. 

The middle 50% of CSB/SJU first-year students entering fall 2002 had the following academic profile:

  • GPA between 3.5-3.9
  • ACT score between 23-28 (1060-1270 on the SAT)
  • HSR between 69%-92%
