GO PURPLE, BE GOLD
Information for Future CBA Applicants
We welcome you and your child to explore the option of a CBA education and investigate if our Lasallian philosophy of teaching is the best fit for your family! Due to the uncertainty of planning future admissions program and exam dates, CBA has re-structured our admissions process for applicants applying for the Fall of 2021.
Brothers Remove Barriers
As a CBA family, we are in this together – supporting our prospective families as you deal with the unique impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on your family. In light of the cancellation of national standardized testing for higher education and because of the extraordinary circumstances many of our prospective families are currently facing, we have temporarily suspended our entrance exam testing requirement. Applicants will be evaluated holistically based upon the other elements of the student application.
New Deadlines and Options
This year, to offer our prospective families more flexibility in pursuing a CBA education, we are offering two options for application:
This option is for students (entering grades 7-10) who have decided that CBA is where they would like to continue their education for the fall of 2021. It allows accepted families to “reserve a spot early”, to have first access to financial aid and scholarship funds, and to participate in the B2B shadowing experience. The early application deadline is Friday, December 18th, 2020. Letters of decision will be mailed by January 8th, 2021 and a $290 non-refundable deposit is due by March 12, 2021.
This option is for students (entering grades 7-10) who have decided in the spring to pursue the option of a CBA education for the Fall of 2021. Regular decision candidates have all the benefits of the early decision applicants, however there may be financial resource and space constraints in certain grade levels, particularly for transfer students in grades 8-10. The regular decision application deadline is March 18, 2021. Letters of decision will be mailed by April 6, 2021 and a $290 nonrefundable deposit is due by May 24, 2021.
