How to Apply

You belong at Beaumont!


Thank you for your interest in Beaumont School!  The admissions process for incoming 9th graders in the fall of 2021 begins in September 2020.  To provide for the health and safety of our Beaumont students, faculty, staff and visitors throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, all admissions events and requirements are subject to change. 

Feel free to connect with a member of the Admissions team by calling 216-325-1661 or by emailing admissions@beaumontschool.org.  We are working to provide you with a more personalized approach to our admissions process. 

We can’t wait to get to know your daughter!  As a current 8th grade student there is much to learn about why Beaumont is the best fit for her high school career. Our admission process is designed to give you opportunities to become familiar with Beaumont and to help us get to know your daughter and your family. We've created a checklist of the admissions process for you to download so you won't miss any important steps. We look forward to working in partnership with you this year. 

STEP 1:  Create a Prospective Student Profile

To begin the admission process, please create a Prospective Student Profile here.  

Once you have created your account, you will receive the latest information and updates from our Admissions office.  In addition, we will share all that is happening in our vibrant community!

STEP 2: Attend a Virtual Open House

As families begin to navigate through the high school admissions process, a great place to start is our Open House.  For the fall of 2020, Beaumont School will offer Virtual Open Houses on Sunday, September 27 and Wednesday, November 11.  While we love nothing more than having you on our beautiful campus, this season we will shift to a new virtual format that will safely allow your family to learn about Beaumont through our students, faculty and coaches.  Just like our tours, your family can select the areas of most interest to you and focus on what’s important to your daughter.

Register for our Virtual Open House here.

STEP 3: Schedule an On-Campus or Virtual Shadow Day

The best way to learn about Beaumont’s empowering learning environment is to visit and experience it in person. However, we realize that for many families, an on-campus Shadow Day may not be an option.  With that in mind, we are offering several opportunities for your daughter to get to know Beaumont.  

Beginning in October,  Beaumont will offer on-campus Shadow Days. We are dedicated to keeping the health and safety of our students and guests at the forefront of what we do and plan to limit the number of guests per day in order to maintain proper physical distancing.  We are fortunate to have a large campus (140,000 square feet) and are able to utilize our communal spaces and outdoor classrooms to safely accommodate our students and guests. Please reference our B Safe plan here to see the safety measures in place for our community.

In addition to on-campus visits, Beaumont is offering Virtual Shadow Days.  Through bi-weekly faculty and ambassador led Zooms, we hope to engage your daughter through a fun and insightful conversation about all that Beaumont has to offer.  We plan to cover everything from uniforms and lunch to specific academic programs like Studio Art. 

Further Shadow Day information, including registration, will be available in September. Please check your email for the latest updates.

STEP 4: Register for an Entrance Exam

STEP 5: Apply

Catholic School Applicants

Prospective students who attend diocesan schools will receive applications in mid-January from their grade school. The application deadline will be at the end of the same week in which the applications are distributed. All applications are sent to the student’s “first-choice” school as noted on the application.

Application forms will be distributed on Monday, January 11, 2021, by Diocesan grade schools.

Those interested in Beaumont should indicate Beaumont as their first choice on this form.

These forms, together with the student’s records, are forwarded to the Beaumont Admission Office by the applicant’s school. All Diocesan applications must be in the Beaumont Admission Office by 3 p.m. on Monday, January 25, 2021.

The Beaumont Admission Committee reviews all applications to decide which students meet the admissions criteria. This review consists of the student’s application, Beaumont entrance exam, 2 teacher recommendations, all grades, and transcripts, standardized testing and attendance and conduct reports. Our committee performs a thorough review of ALL of these materials in making the decision to accept.

A decision letter will be sent in mid-February to applicants who indicate Beaumont School as their first choice.

If applicants indicate Beaumont School is their first choice but they are not admitted, Beaumont will automatically forward their applications to their second choice school.

Public/Private School Applicants

We welcome rolling admissions from students at public or private schools. To begin the application process, students must create a Prospective Student Profile.  Please contact the Admission Office to request a copy of the Beaumont Application. The completed application, along with a student’s transcript, 2 teacher recommendations, and a personal essay are required for review. Students should forward their current school records to the Beaumont Admission Office by using the records release form. This form should be completed and forwarded to the current school’s principal’s office.

Transfer Student Applicants

Students who are interested in transferring to Beaumont from another school either in the area or from out of town are encouraged to spend a day shadowing at Beaumont and to meet with our heads of school. Transfer students are not required to take an entrance exam. However, students are required to submit a Records Release Form to your current school for a transcript to be sent to Beaumont. Please contact our Admissions Office at admissions@beaumontschool.org or at 216.325.1661 in order to discuss application materials, criteria, and guidelines.
