How to Apply

Whether you are applying for our middle school or high school, the enrollment management team is available to ensure your application process goes smoothly. Please contact them at 585-256-6112 at any time throughout the process.

Step 1: Inquire

To start the application process, fill out our Admissions Inquiry Form.

Step 2: Apply

Once you have completed the inquiry process you may begin the steps below.

  1. Complete and submit our Application for Admission. A hard copy of this form also is available.
  2. Submit a copy of last years final report card along with the current years most recent report card, and your most recent standardized test scores to us at admissions@mcquaid.org
  3. Complete your Personal Reflection on a specific topic based upon the grade you are applying for. Only if you have not already tested. 
  4. We require one letter of recommendation, from either an academic teacher or school administrator which the student has interacted with in the past two years. The recommendation may not come from a family member. Recommendation letters may be filled out and submitted via our Letter of Recommendation Form. A hard copy of this form also is available.

Step 3: Enroll

We accept applications throughout the year. An application must be completed in its entirety in order for an application to be reviewed. Once reviewed, a notification of the admissions decision will be mailed to the applicant. Once accepted, applicants may register by submitting a nonrefundable registration fee and tuition deposit. Families applying for financial aid may submit a financial aid application to FAST.


Transfer Applicants

We define transfer applicants as those who intend to enroll at McQuaid at the start of eighth grade, sophomore year, or junior year. Senior year transfers are only allowed if the student is coming from another Jesuit school.
