Saint Raphael Academy Welcome to the Saints family. Welcome home.

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.

The Process

Applicants for Grade 9

  • 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.
  • Take the Catholic High School Entrance Test
  • 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 through FACTS Tuition Management.

The Admissions Office will request the applicant’s transcript and a recommendation from the applicant’s current school, and then the applicant will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee. The Admissions Committee will begin sending decision letters at the end of January.

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.

Entrance Test

All applicants for grade 9 must take the Catholic High School Entrance Test in order to be considered for acceptance. The form of the test administered is the High School Placement Test (HSPT).
All students are welcomed to take the test at Saint Raphael Academy, and if Saint Raphael Academy is an applicant’s first-choice high school, then the student should take the Entrance Test at the Academy.
