Admissions Process

For the 2016-2017 school year, we are accepting applications for all grades: 

The St. Finn Barr Admissions Process: 

1. Contact: Parents are welcome to contact the school via phone or email to schedule a parent tour of the school. Tours are offered individually at a time that is mutually convenient for you and the principal. We are happy to connect you with currently enrolled families to allow for another perspective on school life. Applications can be submitted before, on the day of, or after touring. 

2. Shadow Visit (1st-8th grade applicants): The shadow visit (typically a full day on campus for students already in grade K-7) allows the student to gain a better sense of the learning environment and culture of the school, while also providing the classroom teachers with the opportunity to assess their learning needs. 

3. Registration: Once the acceptance decision has been made, families are formally invited to register. Classroom positions are secured by the remittance of a $500 non-refunable registration fee, and students are ready to attend once their full registration packets (transcripts, immunizations, tuition, etc.) have been completed. 

Orientation: Once new families have registered, they are partnered with an "ambassador family" for their first year of enrollment to ensure that their transition into life at St. Finn Barr is a smooth one. 

We look forward to welcoming you!
