North Catholic High School Apply
8th grade is an important year to learn more about options for high school, and we are excited that your child is interested in applying to North Catholic.  As you navigate through the application process, we encourage your child to attend our 8th grade Scarlet & Gold Day in the fall, come to our Open House, and even spend a day shadowing our school!  The best way to learn about North Catholic is to come in and experience all that we have to offer!
Here is an overview of the needed items for incoming freshmen applicants:   
Creating an account is for new families who do not have a child within our system.  If you have a child already enrolled at North Catholic, please move on to STEP TWO and use your same credentials for your Parent Portal account to log into the system.
STEP TWO:  Complete Online Application
Print out the transcript release for your child and give to his/her current middle school.  In addition to student academic records, diagnostic records, if applicable, also need to be included during this process.
Please note: This request can begin anytime after the completion of the first 9 weeks of 8th grade. 
STEP FOUR:  2 Short Essays
Your child's essays can also be emailed directly to [email protected]
STEP FIVE:  8th Grade Placement Test
Once all of the online application components are completed, students will receive a letter indicating their admissions status. Upon acceptance, there is $700 non-refundable registration fee required to officially enroll in NCHS.  (This deposit will be applied towards your tuition balance.)
We are here to support you along the way to ensure your child is able to complete his/her application process in a timely manner.  We look forward to your child being a part of our North Catholic family!
Contact our Director of Admissions, Mrs. Megan O'Hara, with any questions!
