Important Dates to Remember

Ravenna Online Application Process:

Ravenna is the name of the admission software many Dallas-area private schools began using in the fall of 2015. For the 2018-19 admission season, all Catholic high schools will be using Ravenna. You will create a profile at Here’s a summary of how the Ravenna application process works:

  • You will create a Ravenna profile; you will add your child to that profile; and you will identify St. Philip and St. Augustine Catholic Academy -- Dallas as your child's current school. (That last part is very important!)
  • You will select the school(s) to which your child will apply.
  • Ravenna will step you through the application process for each school you selected. Some of the data will be shared among all of the schools you selected, and some will be specific to each school. The high schools will not know which other schools your child has applied to. For example: If you select Bishop Lynch and Jesuit, BL will know you applied to BL, and Jesuit will know you applied to ESD, but neither will know you applied to the other.

If at any point during the process of creating an application via Ravenna you need assistance, please contact Ravenna at This information is also available on the admission pages of the schools’ websites.
