Admission Procedures
Families considering enrolling at St. Mary’s School are invited to visit our school and meet with the school principal. During this visit you can see our beautiful facilities, learn more about our school offerings and discuss the opportunities for your child. Prospective students are invited to shadow for a day after the family’s visit, with the principal’s approval.

Age Requirements
Children entering the Preschool program must be three years old on or before Sept. 1st and children entering Kindergarten must be five years old on or before Sept. 1st.

New registrations are taken in the school or principal’s office.  The tuition agreement form, birth certificate, completed registration form and fees are needed to complete the registration process.  Transfer students must submit their last report card or transcript of grades along with any testing information.  A non-refundable registration fee is required.

The actual cost of educating a student K-8 exceeds the tuition agreement amount per child.   Through parish subsidy and fundraising, the cost to each family is substantially less than the actual cost. There are discounts for multiple children.
