How to Apply
We are accepting applications for the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 school year.

Whenever possible, St. Mary's School will accept applications for mid-year transfer students on a case by case basis. Students considering a mid-year transfer must complete the admissions application. Tuition will be pro-rated to the nearest quarter. Tuition grants are not available for the transfer year.
5th grade: Applications, including the family interview must be completed by November 15.
Grades 6-12: Applications, including the family interview, must be completed by February 15. After February 15 any remaining openings will be filled on a rolling admission basis.
The application fee is $50 if received by December 16th with a completed application. After that date the application fee to apply to St. Mary's increases to $75. All admissions decisions will be made in mid-February.
In late January of each year, the St. Mary’s School Board of Trustees publishes tuition and the annual family registration fee for the upcoming academic year.
The parents/guardians of accepted applicants complete an enrollment contract once tuition has been set for the year. This enrollment contract accompanies an annual family registration fee which holds a student’s place in the class. Pre-registration begins in February. The registration fee is non-refundable unless an applicant is also waiting for a financial aid package. Tuition grants, however, will not be awarded without a signed enrollment contract on file and deposit. A completed enrollment contract is an agreement to pay tuition for the entire school year.
St. Mary’s offers three tuition payment options: a) eleven monthly installments; b) two semi-annual payments; or c) one annual payment.
Please inquire for tuition rates for the 2017-2018 school year.
We encourage families to apply for a need-based tuition grant as needed. Parents interested in applying for financial aid should indicate so on the application. Financial aid is determined by family need as demonstrated by the submission of the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) to the Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) program. The submission deadline for all tuition grant forms, including copies of tax documents, is March 22. Financial aid awards are generally made in early May to only those fully enrolled.
Grade 5 Admission Decisions

After February 15 any remaining openings will be filled on a rolling admission basis. For these applications, the Admissions Committee will mail decisions generally within two weeks of the interview.
