LOUDONVILLE - A local school has a unique opportunity for their students. St. Pius X Catholic School in Loudonville says it's high achieving students will be offered automatic early admission to Siena College if the students maintain academic excellence after graduation and throughout high school.
On Thursday, the school announced the partnership with Siena College, a first of its kind. In order to qualify for early admission, Siena says interested students must graduate from eighth grade with a gpa of 85 or above in core courses, and maintain the same academic standards throughout high school. The college says potential students will also be exempt from submitting standardized test scores like the SAT's, which are normally part of the Siena admissions process.
Administrators at St. Pius say the program is a great way to encourage students to start thinking about the importance of academic excellence for their future.
