We are now accepting applications for our mandatory summer Higher Achievement Program (HAP) for students entering the third, fourth and fifth grade as well as transfer applications for students entering the sixth, seventh and eighth grade in the 2017-18 school year. HAP is the first step towards being admitted to CJA. All applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis.

You may fill out an application online, download an application, or request an application be mailed or emailed to you.

CJA enrolls young men who:

  • Are motivated to be their best
  • Show great citizenship and character
  • Have adults who support their growth
  • Commit to an extended day and an extended school year

Priority is given to students who qualify for the National School Lunch Program or whose family is otherwise not able to afford a private, college-prep education. If you have any questions about Chicago Jesuit Academy or the application process, please visit our Admissions FAQs page or contact the school at (773) 638-6103 or
