Congratulations!  

We are excited to welcome you and your family to the Cheverus community.  We know you have a lot of questions and are wondering what the next step is...so we are here to help you navigate this process.  

Below are a few of the questions we are frequently asked, by no means does it cover everything!  

So, if you find that you have additional questions, or are looking for direction to a specific department, please reach out to us at admissions@cheverus.org or give us a call, 774-6238.  

We look forward to having you on campus soon!

 


Probably!

We have students from over 50 communities that attend Cheverus - from York to Waterboro to Harpswell, from Biddeford to Scarborough to Windham to Yarmouth...and everywhere in-between.

You will have the opportunity to meet these students at one of the many events held throughout the spring semester, summer and fall activities!  


Starting in the summer with a family BBQ, you have the opportunity to meet your future classmates, current students and homeroom teachers.

We encourage all of our incoming students to participate in a fall team sport or activity on campus.  If you decide to do a fall sport, you'll start preseason team practices in mid-August. Most teams have activities throughout the summer.

There is a Summer Enrichment program for incoming students, Student Orientation and a day that welcomes you to set up your locker, check out your schedule and check in with homeroom teachers. 

By the time classes start, you'll have a whole bunch of new friends!

 

 


We love to see our freshmen trying new things!

Whether it's a new sport or a new club, high school is your opportunity to try new things that have never been available to you before. Have fun!


Your list of courses will be available on line through your student/parent account during the first 2 weeks of June.

Please note that this is not your schedule. This is only the list of classes that you have been placed into according to the results of your placement exam and several other contributing factors. 

As always, we encourage you to contact the Director of Guidance, Victoria Caron, caron@cheverus.org with any questions throughout the year and summer.


For starters, you're going to have a BLAST. 

We have tons of activities, games and food...as well as we make sure you have all your important things taken care of. Locker? We'll make sure you know where it is and how to open it (hopefully on the first try!) and you can even put your books in it for the first day of classes. Email? We'll make sure you're all squared away on that as well. 

We have a whole list of things we make sure our incoming students are ready for the first day of school.

We've been doing this for a few years...you'll be fine!


We have a couple options for you. We suggest, as always, reading your Student Handbook.

There is a page specifically for Dress Code with links to our vendors.  

If you chose to use Lands End for your pants and shirts, they are always running a sale - use a coupon!  Your blazer doesn't have to be fancy or new, many of our students find their blazers at Goodwill or the Blazer Bazaar held in the spring at Cheverus.


At Cheverus, the day starts with the first warning bell for Homeroom at 7:45. If you're not seated in Homeroom by 7:50, you get to spend a few quality minutes with Mr. Costigan, Dean of Students, to discuss arriving on time options! He's a great guy!

Homeroom lasts ten minutes and then it's off to 1st period! The fun continues until 2:20... then it's off to your teams and clubs for afternoon activities. It's a busy day when you're a Cheverian.

 

 


After you get your list of courses in June, you can create an account on Classbooks. Feel free to browse around, but if you wait a couple weeks you'll get a free shipping deal for Cheverus students...it's worth waiting!

Throughout the summer, you can contact our Campus Store, Jennifer Kelley, kelley@cheverus.org, with any questions.

 

 


Yes.

We are instituting a new laptop policy for incoming freshmen. Please read the letter from Dr. Moran regarding this issue.
