The Brebeuf Jesuit Admissions Committee was impressed by the quality of candidates applying to our school, and this year’s applications far exceeded any projections based on data from previous years. To accept a place on our waitlist, please fill out the WAITLIST RESPONSE FORM below by February 25, 2021. If you choose not to accept our waitlist offer, please use the same form below to decline your spot.

It is impossible at this time to predict how many students will be offered admission from the waitlist, and we will not know for several weeks how much room we may have in the class. It is important to know that we do not rank students on our waitlist. Our decision to admit students from the waitlist will depend entirely on the response rate to our initial offers of admission. The strong potential in applications on the waitlist was evident, and the only additional information needed at this time is the completion of the Waitlist Response Form.

If you accept a place on our waitlist, we will send a status update following our March 1, 2021 decision deadline. We recognize that you must likely respond to offers of admission from other schools, and we respect your position in that process. To provide more details about the waitlist process, see the FAQs below. Your interest in Brebeuf Jesuit is greatly valued, and we appreciate your patience and flexibility.


Class of 2025 Waitlist Frequently Asked Questions

Why was I not offered admission?

This year Brebeuf Jesuit witnessed an unprecedented number of qualified candidates and exceptional applications. If you are on the waitlist, you met the admissions requirements and have a quality application portfolio. The admissions committee, composed of faculty, counselors, administrators, and clergy, holistically reviewed every application. While we will not share the specifics of acceptance or waitlist decisions, please know that this process of discernment was thorough and mission-focused.

Can I appeal my admission decision?

No. There is not an appeal process, and we cannot evaluate any new credentials or materials at this time.

Is the waitlist ranked?

No. We do not rank-order our waitlist in any way, and we cannot tell you what number or how high or low you are on the waitlist. If we are able to admit any students from the waitlist, we will re-evaluate all candidates who respond to our waitlist offer.

When will I know if I am admitted from the waitlist?

If Brebeuf Jesuit is able to offer you admission from the waitlist this spring or summer, Director of Admissions Colleen Cannon will inform your family.

What can I do to improve my chances of being offered admission from the waitlist?

The only thing we ask of our applicants is to respond to our waitlist offer online by the date outlined in your waitlist offer letter. You should not submit any new letters of recommendation, writing samples, resumes, certificates, DVDs, CDs, photos, or additional information. Please do not ask anyone to write you an additional letter of recommendation or ask that anyone calls to advocate on your behalf. It is not necessary, and we want to be respectful of your time.

If I am offered admission, will I be considered for financial aid?

If we are able to offer you admission, we will consider you for need-based and merit-based financial aid, assuming you have already completed our required financial aid application. If we are able to offer you admission, we will not expect you to commit to enrolling until after you review your financial aid award.
