Tour the School – We invite families to come experience Cabrini. During the tour, families will visit our 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, which might include a classroom observation or meeting directly with a particular teacher.

Application

Once a family determines that they are interested in applying to St. Frances Cabrini Academy, they should complete an application for each prospective student. The new student application fee is $35, which increases to $75 after August 1. The application fee is non-refundable and should be paid at the time the application is submitted.

Please note, no applications will be accepted between August 1st and Labor Day.

Assessment

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, these academic assessments will be used to determine acceptance.

With the exception kindergarten applicants, prospective students will be asked to spend a full-day visiting Cabrini, interacting with their 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 spend only a half-day visiting the school. 

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

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.
