Applying to SRA

Saint Raphael Academy is currently accepting applications for grades 9, 10, and 11.

The Academy admits academically qualified students of any race, color, nationality, or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students. All applicants are review by the members of the Admissions Committee and all admissions decisions are based on prior academic performance, standardized test scores, and a recommendation from the applicant’s current school.

Applicants for Grade 9:

If you are currently a student in grade 8 and are interested in applying for acceptance into the Academy’s Class of 2022, which begins grade 9 in the fall of 2018, the application process is relatively simple:

  • First, complete and submit the online Application for Admission. In order for the application to be complete, you must submit the $40 application fee, which covers all costs associated with the processing of an application and the Entrance Test.

Once a complete application for admission is received and the applicant has taken the Entrance Test, the Admissions Office will request the applicant’s transcript and a recommendation from the applicant’s current school. Once the applicant’s complete transcript and recommendation are received, the applicant will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee.

The first round of letters indicating the Admissions Committee’s decisions will be sent out in January 2018 for applicants to the Class of 2022.

In order to be notified of the Admissions Committee’s decision on January 26, 2018, the application must be received by December 22, 2017. Applications received after December 22 will be considered on a rolling basis and will require at least 10 business days after receipt of the applicant’s transcript and entrance test scores before a decision is rendered.

Please note that while all applicants are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships during the admissions process, if you wish to be considered for need-based financial aid, you must complete a separate need-based financial aid application. More information about financial aid can be found here.

 

Transfer Applicants:

If you are a student who is currently attending another high school and you are interested in transferring to the Academy for grade 9, 10, or 11, the application process is simple.

Just submit the online Application for Admission. In order for the application to be complete, you must submit the $40 application fee, which covers all costs associated with the processing of an application.

Once a completed application and application fee are received, the Admissions Office will request a copy of the applicant’s transcript and a recommendation from the applicant’s current school. After the initial evaluation of the transcript and recommendation, the Admissions Office may choose to contact the applicant to schedule an interview with the applicant, parents/guardians and members of the Admissions Committee. After the conclusion of the interview, the applicant will be notified of the Admissions Committee’s decision.

Please note that while all applicants are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships during the admissions process, if you wish to be considered for need-based financial aid, you must complete a separate need-based financial aid application. More information about financial aid can be found here.

*In addition to filing an application for admission, an applicant interested in transferring into grade 9 must also take the Catholic High School Entrance Test.
