Brother Rice Shadow Day

Incoming Freshman Registration – Class of 2021

Congratulations! Your son has begun application to Brother Rice High School as a member of the Class of 2021. With superior academics, exceptional facilities, championship sports and activity programs, Brother Rice is peerless among secondary institutions in the state. All this is in a safe, community environment that fosters faith development and personal growth. You and your son have chosen well.

Admission to Brother Rice High School and placement in appropriate classes are based both on the results of the placement exam your son took today and on grammar school records and recommendations.

Please complete the “Intent to Register Form” and return it with a non-refundable $200 registration fee in the enclosed pre-addressed envelope no later than Wednesday, January 25, 2017. The returning of this form, along with the $200 payment, by the deadline allows us to consider for admission only those young men who seriously wish to attend our school. This payment will only be refunded if your son’s application is not accepted.

Please also include with your “Intent to Register Form” a copy of your son’s Birth Certificate. It is mandated by the State of Illinois that schools have a copy of a student’s birth certificate on file. Therefore, if your son’s birth certificate is not submitted, he will not be allowed to attend school until this compliance is met.

Please complete the “Release Form for Student’s Elementary School Records” and have your son take it along with the attached “High School Pre-Admission Form” to the office of the grammar school he is attending.

We intend to mail notification to you of your son’s admission status at Brother Rice on Friday, February 10, 2017.

Tuition for the present school year is $11,000.00, plus a $200.00 registration fee and a $300.00 student lab/activity fee. Next year’s tuition has not been set, but it will likely increase. The cost of books and the Chromebook are not included in tuition.

Thank you for your attention to the above procedures and again congratulations for choosing the best secondary education in the state.

In the spirit of Edmund Rice,

James P. Antos
