How to Apply

The most important part of the admissions process is that prospective students and their families have all of the information that they need to make an informed decision. Our office is dedicated to giving students every opportunity to obtain this information at our grade school presentations, Open House, Information Sessions, and through our Wildcat for a Day visits. For more information, contact the Admissions Office at (216) 651-0222, ext 394.

The first-step of the admissions process is taking our Admissions Test. Tests will be offered October 8, October 22, and November 5. The Admissions test covers math, English and reading, and is used as only one criterion for evaluating prospective students. All prospective students must take this test. CLICK HERE to register for a test now.

The test fee is $20, which can be paid online during registration.

At the test, each student will receive several forms that will need to be returned to our office by late January:

  • Principal/Teacher Recommendation
  • Pastor Recommendation

Diocesan School Applicants

Prospective students who attend diocesan schools will receive their applications in mid-January from their grade school. The application deadline will be at the end of the same week in which the applications are distributed. Upon submission of the diocesan application, records will be sent to the applicant's "first-choice" school.

Non-Diocesan School Applicants

Prospective students who do not attend diocesan schools will receive non-diocesan application forms when they take our admissions test. These forms must be submitted to our office by January 31, 2017. The application will become official upon the receipt of the non-diocesan application form and transcripts (in addition to the forms mentioned earlier). 

Decision Letters

The admissions committee is made up of 10-12 members of the Administration and Faculty.  In early February, the committee will consider all of these applications at the same time and will select our incoming Class based on the philosophies set by the school's Board of Regents. All decision letters will be mailed on February 15.
