Admissions Process
STEP 1: Students applying for admission to Charleston Catholic High School must complete an INQUIRY FORM. Should you desire more information than is available on our website, please complete the form and our Admissions Office will contact you.

STEP 2: Please consider making an appointment to visit or attend our Prospective Parent Open House. We would very much like to meet with parents and provide you with an opportunity to tour our school. Contact the Admissions Office at and (304) 342-8415.

STEP 3: Once you complete and submit the INQUIRY FORM, you are invited to “shadow” one of our students! This day will give you an inside look at CCHS. You will follow our eight-period day and be our guest for lunch. At the end of the day, we hope you’ll be able to reflect on your reasons for joining the CCHS community and make your decision whether to proceed with the application process. The shadow visit is not required before submitting your application, but it is required prior to admission. We offer our 5th Grade Visit Day for rising 6th graders, and rising 7th-10th graders should make an appointment for a Shadow Day with the Admissions Office.

STEP 4: Submit the online application by clicking on this link. Applying is easy using our online application and provides parents a tool for tracking the status of their admission after their application has been submitted.

The online application will become available after January 1st, 2020. To begin the Online Application process, Create an Account. Then log in to your account and Create A New Student Application for your child. You will then have the flexibility to log in and out of your account and access your open application. A non-refundable fee of $60 must be submitted with each application. Be sure to hit submit!

After submitting the application, you will be able to track your admissions status at the school by logging in to your account. There, you will be able to monitor when the school receives supplemental application forms.

STEP 5: Submit supplemental application documents. Applications are not considered complete and will not be reviewed by the Admissions Committee until the following forms are submitted via mail, email, or fax to the Admissions Office:

-Copies of 2019-2020; 2018-2019; and 2017-2018 report cards
