Cardinal Ritter High School

Application Process

Complete and return the application for admission with all requested information to Cardinal Ritter Junior/Senior High School before January 31, 2015.  Applications received before this deadline will be placed in a preferred admissions category, and for those applying for financial aid, placed in the first pool for financial aid distribution. A PDF version of the application is available to download to the right under 'Important Documents'. If you would prefer to submit an online application, CLICK HERE!

All students entering 9th grade must take a placement test before receiving admission to Cardinal Ritter High School. Students applying for admission to our junior high must follow the admission process, but do not take the placement test. Eligibility for scholarships given by our Parent Club is based only on results from the placement test given by Cardinal Ritter.

Once you have completed the application process and provided the school with all needed data for acceptance and placement, your application will be reviewed, and you will receive a decision letter in early February. An acceptance package will include a letter from the principal along with materials and information regarding Pre-Registration/Curriculum Night. It is important to attend this meeting in order to set a registration appointment with our guidance department, receive details about course offerings and curriculum, and obtain a financial aid application.

All questions should be directed to Vince Purichia, Director of Admissions
