Applications for Incoming Students

The admissions office is still currently accepting applications for both incoming freshmen students and transfer students for the 2021-2022 school year. If you know of someone who would like to apply to Antonian, please share the following information.
Re-Enrollment Deadline | Friday, April 9, 2021

As mentioned in previous email communications, Antonian maintains a streamlined process for re-enrollment. In keeping with this, we assume that all students are re-enrolling unless a parent/guardian informs us in writing that their child is not returning by Friday, April 9, 2021. Given this, all family FACTS tuition accounts will be charged a $400 re-enrollment fee (per student) on Tuesday, April 20, 2021. Please note this re-enrollment fee is non-refundable.
 
Antonian maintains detailed student and family records based on the information you have provided to us on previous enrollment forms. This information will carry forward to the next school year. Should you need to update any student record information including parent contact information or emergency contact information at any time throughout the year, please use the "Parent/Guardian Contact Form" that is located on our website (under the tab "Current Families").

2020-2021 Tuition Past Due Balances

  • Past Due Balances for SENIORS:  In order to clear seniors for graduation, school policy requires all financial obligations on campus to be paid in full by May 14th. Exceptions are not made to this policy, so we kindly ask that you plan accordingly to ensure your senior is cleared to receive his/her graduation cap and gown.

  • Past Due Balances and Missed Payments: Tuition is due on the 5th of every month unless other arrangements have been made. Past due balances and missed payments have an impact on the cash resources used to meet our financial obligations.  Accounts with past due balances greater than 60 days could impact the re-enrollment status of your child. Again, if you have experienced or are experiencing financial hardship, please work directly with our Business Office staff as soon as possible.


NEW!! 2021-2022 FACTS Agreements

  • March 29th (completed) - Agreement finalization for those returning families on invoice agreements has been completed. Re-enrollment fee of $400 due on or before April 20th. Please make your re-enrollment fee payment online with FACTS or visit our Business Office. Late fees will apply after April 20th.

A hearty and worthy congratulations is given to Andres Santillan and Joshua Alarcon!
