How to Apply

School isn’t just what you learn, it’s who you become.

Our goal through the admissions process is to develop a thorough understanding of each student who applies while providing an opportunity for you to experience the school and connect with our community.

The first step in this process is to complete the application. Eastside Catholic uses a web-based application hosted by Ravenna Solutions. Ravenna allows you to apply, complete supplemental forms, request teacher evaluations and transcripts, and track the status of your application online.

New users must first create an account in Ravenna. Please click on the Apply Online button to create your Ravenna account or to access an existing account.

Middle School & High School Students

Eastside Catholic offers students an exceptional educational experience. Academic excellence, enrichment activities, faith, athletics, leadership skills and community support are all foundational here.
