Become a Future Colt

Built originally on a horse farm in 1959, with the earliest school building housed in a converted stable, Christian Brothers Academy celebrates its humble beginnings by referring to its students as the "Colts." Now you can share in our tradition by joining the Future Colt program.

The Future Colt program allows prospective 8th grade students to get a glimpse of what a typical day at the Academy is really like. Prospective students are join a Freshman Host for several full classes, along the way getting a firsthand experience of the atmosphere, engagement, and camraderie at the Academy.

  • For more detailed information, download our online information sheet on the right side of this page. 
  • To schedule your Future Colt visit, you must first complete the online Admissions Application. 
  • After that, you will be able to request a visit from the online parent portal.
Spaces for Future Colt visits are limited, and we cannot guarantee a Future Colt visit for all interested students. We kindly ask that you only schedule a Future Colt visit if your son is still undecided on his high school selection. If your son has already decided on attending CBA, we kindly ask that you refrain from requesting a visit so we may provide for those who truly need it.

All Future Colt visitors will receive an excused absence note to give to their current school at the end of their visit.
