The heart of the Christian community is our Triune Lord: Father, Son, Holy Spirit. Geography, history, and numbers are not the heart, but probably I will type mostly on these topics. As the internet already provides many encouraging spiritual guides and discouraging contentious forums, I intend to offer neither.

Catholic HS entrance exam Oct. 31, 2015.

Regarding entrance to a Catholic high school in Nassau or Suffolk County, New York, the dates are fast approaching.  Please see the website linked here for a list of deadlines and other information about taking the test.  The website includes applications for the exam with or without a request for exceptional treatment "with accommodation."
There are seven Catholic high schools in Nassau County and three in Suffolk County. One entrance exam counts for all. An eighth-grader may apply to three schools.  
I wonder about the ratio between the number of test-takers and the number of seats available in the seven high schools. 
The 2015 edition of the Official Catholic Directory gives these enrollment figures:
St. Domnic High School, Oyster Bay, 465 students.
Our Lady of Mercy Academy, Syosset, 486 girls.
St. Mary High School, Manhasset, 620 students.
Sacred Heart Academy, Hempstead, 825 girls.
Holy Trinity Diocesan High School, Hicksville, 1,145 students.
Chaminade High School, Mineola, 1,700 boys.
Kellenberg Memorial High School, Uniondale, 2,600 students.
