Entrance/Placement Test.  The Catholic Schools Office of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati has waived the 2020 entrance and placement test for the Class of 2025 due to concerns of COVID-19 and the uncertainty of future restrictions placed upon our schools and communities by governing stakeholders.   MND’s admission process will include an online application and review of the applicant’s school records.  Additional specifics will be outlined at a later date.

Application for Admission to MND.  Beginning in early September, eighth graders and parents may complete an online Application for Admission.  MND will request records from each applying student’s current school to be received no later than December 1.
