Welcome to Admissions!

By igniting your spirit and inspiring your future, Holy Name doesn’t just prepare you for college, we prepare you for life! As a Holy Name student, you learn to think for yourself, to be accountable for yourself, and to be open-minded to both new ideas and different people. If you decide to make Holy Name your high school, you will find that we not only focus on you academically, but we also help you grow as a person, spiritually, socially, and morally. From classes and retreats, to rallies and games, you are bound to find a lot of things to love about Holy Name. If you are interested in receiving additional information regarding Holy Name and/or our Namer for a Day Program, contact our Admissions Office at 440-886-0300, ext. 100 or 116. Holy Name also will hold a Fall Open House.

If you currently attend a Catholic elementary school, you will be receiving a diocesan application from your eighth grade teacher in early January. Your application should be completed and returned to your elementary school by the end of the same week the application is given to you. Your official grade school records and the diocesan application will be sent to the first choice school only. In mid-February, Holy Name will mail out all admission decision letters to the students.

If you currently attend a Public School or a Non-Diocesan Private School and wish to apply to Holy Name High School, you can download the Application and the Authorization to Release School Records forms by accessing the Admissions Applications/Forms section below. Please have your application and school records sent to Holy Name High School by January 31.
