Applying to FXW

We are excited to launch our new online application portal!

In our effort to support a more user friendly application experience,The Frances Xavier Warde School uses Ravenna, a third-party web-based application service. FXW is one of several Chicago schools using this tool for the submission of all application materials.

Through Ravenna, you will be able to:

  • Submit an application
  • Schedule your parent interview
  • Email teacher recommendation forms (LMAIS Common Recommendation Forms) directly to your child’s teacher/principal
  • Check the status of your application

To initiate the application process please click the apply online button below.  Please note, in the Ravenna portal PS = 3 year old preschool and PK = 4 year old preschool.
