Admissions Process

AdmissionsFamilies applying to St. Ann Academy will be scheduled for any of the applicable portions of the admissions process, including:

  • A tour of the school
  • An interview by the principal with parents and the student
  • Academic or Readiness Screening
  • A shadow day, on which the prospective student spends a day with his/her potential classmates
  • A reference check with the school the student is transferring from, if applicable
  • Completion of application paperwork

  • Once all initial applicants have been through the above process, the Admissions Team, consisting of the principal and several faculty members, will make admissions decisions.

    Priority for admission will be given as follows:
  • Current students
  • Siblings of present students
  • Children of active parishioners in local parishes
  • Children transferring from a Catholic school outside the local area
  • Catholic children from outside the local parish area
  • All others

  • All students are admitted on a conditional acceptance for at least one marking period.

    Acceptance or wait-list letters to initial applicants are then sent, usually in early April. Occasionally, a student is not accepted, and the principal meets with the parents/guardians to assist with other options.

    Other applicants may apply for admission to St. Ann Academy at any time throughout the year. Students may transfer to St. Ann Academy during the school year.
