Academy Admissions Policy

All Hallows Academy welcomes students regardless of race, color, or ethnic origin. While active members of All Hallows Parish have first preference for admission to the Academy, qualified students of other parishes and/or faiths are welcome to attend our school. We will also work to accommodate those challenged students capable of achieving a positive educational experience in our academic environment.

Please review the school’s application for additional admissions requirements.
