Admissions Process

We look forward to learning more about you during the admissions process. We welcome applications from academically qualified 8th graders and transfer students* of all faith denominations, without regard to race or national origin. Students are evaluated by the Admissions Committee on the basis of past school performance, a teacher reference, community involvement and if needed, a personal interview. 

*Cheverus admits students in grades 9, 10 and 11 in the fall semester and students in grades 9 and 10 in the spring semester. 

Due to our substantial service requirements, theology curriculum, and four-year retreat program, unless the student is transferring from another Jesuit or Catholic High School, unfortunately we are unable to consider a senior transfer.
