Offering Grades 6-12

Admissions Process

Admissions at Bishop Kearney are on a rolling basis and is as simple as 1, 2, 3:

  1. Applicants  must complete the “New Student Application” (online) which is located on the left hand side of this page.
  2. Applicants entering 6th, 7th or 9th grade should pre-register and sit for the placement exam at Bishop Kearney offered in the late fall or early spring. Pre-register by sending us an email at or by calling the admissions office at 342-4000 x246. If a student applies in late spring or summer (after the last placement exam) their acceptance will be evaluated based on the strength of their “new student application” and official school transcript.

The admissions committee meets weekly to review admissions applications and acceptance letters are generally mailed out within 7 days.






Notes for Bishop Kearney applicants:

We encourage all applicants to sign up for a shadow day (optional but strongly recommended).  A shadow day is an important part of the decision-making process for the prospective applicants.  Shadow days are by appointment only and must be set up by emailing or by calling the admissions office at 342-4000 x246.

Transfer Applications

A transfer applicant is defined as a student who intends to leave his/her current school to enter Bishop Kearney at the start of his/her eighth grade, sophomore or junior year. Except for rare exceptions Bishop Kearney does not accept transfers into senior year.

Transfer applications are handled on a case-by-case basis, and transfer applicants should contact the Admissions office to discuss their specific situation.
