Important Information on Application and Admission

Who may apply?

  • The applicant must be a member of his/her school’s Grade 10 batch at the time of application.
  • No minimum grade is demanded of Grade 11 applicants.  However, Ateneo de Manila SHS seeks students with good academic performance, no failing grades and good deportment records.
  • The applicant must not have applied for Grade 11 in  Ateneo de Manila SHS prior to this application.
  • Applicants must note that an entrance test is a required part of the screening process.  Thus, each applicant must commit to traveling to the Ateneo campus in Quezon City on the dates specified below in order to take the entrance test.  Applicants who pass Ateneo's screening processes must be prepared to attend in-person classes.
  • The school does not accept transferees/ applicants for Grade 12. Grade 11 is the only entry point into Ateneo de Manila Senior High School.





What is the process and schedule for application?

Application to Ateneo de Manila Senior High School is online.  In order to apply, the student must create an account in the Ateneo de Manila SHS Admission System. 

The application period for Grade 11 SY 2023-2024 will begin on 19 September 2022.

The deadline for creating an account in the Admission System is on 29 November 2022.  Those without accounts in the Admission system by this date will not be allowed to proceed with application.


How will applications for Grade 11 SY 2022-2023 be screened? Will there be an entrance test?

The Ateneo Senior High School Admission and Placement Exam (A-SHAPE) will be administered for screening of applicants for Grade 11 SY 2023-2024. The A-SHAPE will be one of the bases for acceptance, along with considerations of academic performance (grades in Grade 8, Grade 9 and the first grading period of Grade 10), deportment, recommendations of teachers, and the student’s application essay (short autobiography). If more information is needed, some applicants may also be invited for an interview; however, an invitation to be interviewed does not guarantee acceptance and the absence of an interview does not signify non-acceptance





When and where will the A-SHAPE be administered?

The testing schedules for the entrance test (A-SHAPE) are as follows:
