Student Application

Applications are available on the Application Forms link.

Student Visits

Students applying for admission to third through eighth grade usually attend a “shadow day” at Gesu School on the day of their screening. These visits allow the students to experience the academic, religious, athletic, and social aspects of a day at Gesu School.


All students in Grade one through eight are screened in Math and Reading prior to admission. Screenings take place at Gesu School and are administered by a member of our faculty. All Kindergarten applicants are screened as part of their admission process. These screenings usually take place in March.

Student Acceptance

Parents are notified of the status of their child’s application following the evaluation of all submitted materials and the results of the screening.
