Admissions Application

Thank you for your interest in a Catholic school education, where children of all faiths and beliefs are welcome. Please review all of the information on this page before you start your Admissions Application. We do not inquire about the immigration status of any family or child for purposes of applying for admissions or financial assistance. Financial Assistance is still available for 2019-20! The earlier families apply, the better their chances of receiving an award.
