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 applications for Fall Admission for students in 9th, 10th and 11th grades.  Spring semester transfer applications are considered for grades 9 and 10.

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.
