Applying to Cheverus

High School is a time of remarkable growth, change, and discovery! At Cheverus, we accompany students and families through this exciting and transformative time in their lives.  For our students, academic rigor is balanced with personal development. We help our students to reach their fullest potential academically, spiritually, and personally.

Cheverus welcomes 9th grade applications for the school year beginning in 2020, and Transfer* applications for the spring semester of this 2019-20 academic year.

In our admission process, our selection committee looks for demonstrated academic commitment, intellectual curiosity, interest in service to one’s community, personal qualities such as resilience, and determination, and the promise for personal growth. We carefully consider recommendations by teachers, the required essay questions, and a student’s extracurricular activities. Students from a wide variety of communities across Maine find a place among our dynamic and talented community of students. 

*Points of entry for Transfer Students include: spring of 9th grade, fall and spring of 10th grade, and fall of 11th grade.

Applying is easy using our online application. A complete application includes:

  • A completed and electronically signed online application.
  • Teacher Reference: The teacher referral form is submitted online through the application portal. You will submit the name and email address of the teacher who will provide the referral.
  • Transcript: The transcript request form is submitted online through the application portal. You will provide the name and email address of the school official who will provide the transcript.

  • A non-refundable fee of $50.
