How to Apply

Experience Cardinal Shehan

We invite you to gain a better understanding of what it means to join the Cardinal Shehan School Community!

Visit the Nest

The Cardinal Shehan School typically holds two Open Houses throughout the school year. This new year has brought a new name. As the fall progresses, we will share more information about our Visit the Nest Days, formerly called our Open Houses. More details to come!

During the average Open House, you will receive information about the school including some history, application process, and financial aid. You will also have the chance to meet some of our current administration, faculty and current families. You will receive the opportunity to see various spaces on campus including classrooms, the library, and the gym. Prospective students are highly encouraged to attend the Open House with their families. 

Our Visit the Nest opportunities through June 2022 will be as follows:

December 8, 2021 - virtual

February 3, 2022 - virtual
