School Notes

  • Admission Process Tours of the school are available throughout the year and are scheduled on an individual basis. Please contact the School Office at 216.662.9380 to make an appointnent. To be considered for admission we look for students who are successful in their current academic environments; who conduct themselves in a manner fitting with the St. Benedict Catholic School behavioral standards; and whose parents/guardians are invested in the education process. Applicants meeting these criteria will be invited to continue in the application process. The school principal schedules a personal meeting and tour with each applicant and family, during which you can ask questions and get an in-depth look at the opportunities a St. Benedict Catholic School education can offer your child. Students entering grades 1 through 8 take a grade level entrance assessment specifically designed to assess aptitude in Language Arts and Math. Students applying for Grades 2 to 8 spend a day shadowing in the classroom of their peers. This enables the incoming students to get a feel for life at St. Benedict Catholic School, and allows the teachers to get a sense of the new student's personality and learning style. Generally, the student completes the grade level assessment (described above) during the same visit.  After the student has completed the above steps, the application will be evaluated and an enrollment decision will be made. As a Catholic school, our priority is to first select qualified candidates of Catholic faith. It is possible that a student may be put on a wait list for classes that are at or near capaclty, and parish families have first priority in cases where class space is limited. If your child is accepted, you will receive a packet of registration materials that must be completed and submitted to the school office, along with a $100 registration fee, to secure yoru space.
