Tour the School – We invite families to take a tour. Families will visit classrooms, speak with teachers, interact with current students, and spend time meeting with the school’s administration.  Tours last approximately one hour. Please note, the tour will include climbing several flights of stairs.

Additional visits can also be arranged, and might include a classroom observation or meeting directly with a particular teacher.


Once a family determines that they are interested in applying to St. Frances Cabrini Academy, they should complete an application and submit required documents. The new student application fee is $35 per student and is non-refundable. It should be paid at the time the application is submitted.


Every prospective student will be assessed for grade readiness and fit. The assessment will assist the school in providing appropriate services. In conjunction with family interviews and review of records,  assessments will be used to determine acceptance.

With the exception of kindergarten applicants, prospective students will be asked to spend a full-day visiting Cabrini, interacting with potential classmates and teachers as well as participating in classroom activities. During their visit, the student will complete math and language arts assessments designed by the teachers. Students will also be observed for their social interactions with the teachers and classmates. Incoming kindergarten applicants will be invited to a kindergarten interaction session.

If a visit day cannot be scheduled (such as during summer break), the applicant will meet with a Cabrini teacher or administrator to take appropriate placement tests and participate in an informal interview process designed to help the teacher understand the needs of the student. In this case, conditional acceptance may be offered. 


Acceptance decisions will be made following a review of records and a meeting with parents. Students will receive a letter of acceptance within two weeks.  If it is determined that Cabrini is not the best fit for the applicant, we will work with the family to make appropriate recommendations regarding other options.
