Norwood-Fontbonne Academy is pleased to partner with Ravenna for its online application submissions process. Ravenna simplifies the admissions process for you, helping you submit forms, monitor the status of your application, view decisions and more. In turn, Ravenna helps our Admissions Office track your application as well, so you will be guided every step of the way of the admissions process.

Let’s get started. Click on the “Apply Now” button, which will take you to the Ravenna website. Create an account using a familiar email address that you use frequently and will use throughout the admission process. It’s through this email that our Admissions Office will contact you.

Next, complete the Student Profile, where you’ll complete student and parent information. Under ‘General,’ click on ‘Student Directory’ and choose Norwood-Fontbonne Academy. Click ‘Apply’ and begin your application.

The application and $110 application fee ($30 for siblings of currently enrolled students) along with a copy of a birth certificate, immunization records, and recommendation form are completed and submitted online. The fee covers the cost of the application process and student assessment. 

Ravenna has standard grade levels that may not match up with NFA’s early education grade levels, so here’s a handy guide for you when you apply. Once you continue the application process, you will be able to select the specific application type to which you wish to apply. 

Ravenna Grade NFA Grade
