    What GPA do you need to get into Silver Lake College of the Holy Family?

    Silver Lake College of the Holy Family’s average GPA is 2.58. Silver Lake College of the Holy Family does require GPA. Silver Lake College of the Holy Family is currently selective. However, be aware that oftentimes schools in this GPA range are increasing their selectivity in hope of increasing “prestige”. We can’t read the minds of SLC application readers, but they likely want to increase the average GPA from 2.58 to 2.71 this year - to play it safe, we recommend striving for the 2.71 GPA.

    *BEFORE CONTINUING PLEASE NOTE: GPA and “prestige” DO NOT mean a college is right for you. Silver Lake College of the Holy Family may seem amazing on paper, but you may hate it... That’s why 700,000 students transfer colleges every year - they end up going to the wrong school. It’s crucial to watch the videos on CampusReel and make sure you can envision yourself on SLC’s campus.

    How to get into SLC

    Main Academic Excellence that is in line with SLC admission standards.

    1. Score at least a 1005 on the SAT or 32 on the ACT.
    2. Maintain a GPA of at least a 2.58.

    Join Extracurriculars that Align with SLC’s Values.

    1. Join your school band, a sports team or another group activity. If Silver Lake College of the Holy Family values music heavily, for example, then try to participate in an organization related to that topic.
    2. Volunteer in your hometown. Manitowoc has tons of ways to be involved beyond just the college. Silver Lake College of the Holy Family wants applicants that are also good ambassadors for the school - they want students who will give back to the local community and broader Manitowoc area in general.
    3. Spend your summer doing something that speaks to your values, personal growth, leadership qualities and other less quantifiable characteristics. SLC needs to see past your test scores and grades - they need to know that you will be a valuable and contributing member of their community. You are more than grades and test scores - your experiences should demonstrate that.

    Prepare Your Application

    1. Write a stellar essay that shows Silver Lake College of the Holy Family something they can’t figure out from the other parts of your application. For a detailed guide on writing the best college essay, check this out.
    2. Get teacher recs that speak to your character. If you know what you’re majoring in and include that in your SLC app, try to have at least 1 recommendation from a teacher in that department.
    3. Apply Before the Deadline. Too many students wait until the last minute to submit their application, and too much can go wrong during this precious time window. Since many students are applying on the last day, it’s possible that SLC’s own system crashes. Don’t risk the added stress this can cause - submit your app a few days early.
