Early Action

Bishop Feehan’s Early Action Program allows 5th, 6th, and 7th grade students at Feehan’s partner schools to reserve a guaranteed 9th grade spot in advance and enjoy the rest of middle school knowing that their high school admission is already secure. While some families are choosing to leave Feehan’s partner schools early out of fear that they might not have a seat available in 9th grade if they wait, Feehan believes in the K-8 model of education and the transition to high school in 9th grade.

Students can remain at their current schools, maturing into the leaders of those communities, being taught by middle school specialists during those important years, and enjoying their remaining middle school experience free from the pressures of high school. Students and families will also enjoy an early transition to the Feehan community through special Early Action nights at sporting events, plays, and performances.

Early Action Application Steps

Applications are accepted October 15-May 17. Our Early Action application is easy! While students and families apply the same way as 8th grade students, the Early Action application is much shorter.

Upon review and acceptance a $100 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your spot. Acceptances are conditional on students remaining in our partner schools and remaining successful academically, behaviorally, and spiritually. Traditional 8th grade application process (including entrance exam) is required to finalize your student's acceptance for high school. 


1. Create a Ravenna family account. Select Bishop Feehan High School from the School Directory.

*Note: Early Action applicants must apply as Grade 9 for Fall 2024. Student's actual grade level will be entered appropriately on application.
