Christian Brothers Academy does accept a very small amount of 10th grade students each summer. There are certain criteria which must be completed and strict deadlines that must be met in order to gain admission. Please see below.
Christian Brothers Academy considers upper class admission on a case by case basis. It is important to us that you are serious about joining the Academy and we want to help provide you the best opportunity for success in high school and beyond. If you are interested in pursuing a CBA education, please follow the instructions below very closely. In most cases, we admit only 10th grade transfer students. However, there are special scenarios where we will consider admission for 11th grade students. These include: students whose parents are active military and are moving to the area, students moving to the area from a different state or part of New Jersey, and those students coming from another Catholic/Lasallian High School.
The transfer admission period is now open. For students interested in transferring to CBA for the 2019-2020 school year, the Upperclass Admission Entrance Exam will be offered on the following dates and times:
If you are interested in having your son transfer to CBA, please contact Jennifer Maccarella (732-747-1959 x 217 or email@example.com) prior to the exam dates to arrange an interview for your son and receive more information on how to register for the exam and submit his application.
All materials must be received by June 15, 2019.
All 10th grade transfer students must complete a two week long “Living LaSallian” Summer Seminar held at Christian Brothers Academy. You are required to attend every session from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on scheduled days. This Seminar will acquaint transfer students with the Catholic faith and principles of LaSallian education. There is a $500 fee associated with the seminar which must be paid in full at the beginning of the summer seminar. The seminar will be held in August.
If you are an 11th grade transfer student, you are required to take an online religion course through a partnership with Manhattan College. This will satisfy the two years of religious studies you have missed. The course will have a discounted tuition and is the responsibility of your family and not part of your CBA tuition.
