An application for new students can be found HERE . All applications are accepted only via this online form.

 

Consideration of Applicants

While persons of all faiths are accepted into Saint Christopher Academy each year, for new Pre-kindergarten through 8th grade applicants we do give priority to:

  • Families who currently have a child or children enrolled at Saint Christopher Academy
  • Students previously enrolled in a Catholic school
  • Children of St. Christopher School, Infant Jesus School, and Nashua Catholic Jr. High alumni
  • Date application was submitted

 

 

Application Decision

Applications will be considered immediately, and you will receive an email shortly from Saint Christopher Academy regarding the status of your application. Families with accepted children will then have 10 days to return necessary documents, pay the required $200 non-refundable registration fee, and complete a Release of Records Form, when applicable. If an applicant’s family does not respond within the 10 days, the open seat will be given to another student.
