Welcome to the Archbishop O’Hara Admissions Page.  The following are the steps to take in order to enroll a student. Thank you for your interest in our school.

We will be visiting students attending the Kansas City – St. Joseph diocesan elementary schools throughout their junior high years.  If you are new to Catholic schools, please call Ann Julich at 816-763-4800 or e-mail ajulich@oharahs.org to set up a tour or attend our annual Open House in the fall.

 Enrollment Process

 The High School Placement Test

The first step in the enrollment process for 8th graders is to take the High School Placement Test.  The test is administered in early January and is a requirement for all students wishing to enter a Catholic high school in the area.  Call the school 816-763-4800 or e-mail ajulich@oharahs.org to confirm the date and to register a student for the test.

Enrollment Packet

When test scores are received in early February, we send an enrollment packet to the prospective family.  This packet includes Placement Test scores and registration materials.

 Enrollment Interviews

Enrollment for incoming freshmen is an interview process.  Appointments for interviews are scheduled during the last week of February.  The interview process is outlined in the enrollment packet.

 Registration and Enrollment Fee

Registration must be completed and turned in along with an enrollment fee of $300.00.  The fee increases to $400.00 after April 15.  This fee secures the student’s spot for the coming school year.  Enrollment is on a first come/first serve basis.  Enroll the last week of February and get into the classes you want and avoid waiting lists.  Late enrollment could jeopardize attendance at O’Hara.

 Scholarships and Financial Aid

Scholarship and Financial Aid applications are available at the time of enrollment.  The deadline for both applications is March 31.  Awards are announced by May 15.

If you missed the testing date, please call the school and specific instructions will be mailed to you.

 Transfer Procedures

Upperclassmen interested in transferring to Archbishop O’Hara must complete a Transfer Packet and return it to the school for review.  Academic, attendance and discipline reports must be positive. Students are then invited in for an enrollment interview where courses are chosen and a schedule is generated.  Call 816-763-4800 or e-mail ajulich@oharahs.org,   to request a Transfer Packet.
