Admissions Timeline

Timeline for 2020-21 School Year Application

We are accepting applications...

What Happens After I Apply?

While the Application is Being Considered

Visit For Gr. 3 and Higher -- If your child is going into 3rd grade or higher, we will schedule a school-day visit for your child -- otherwise known as a shadow visit.

School Records -- We will send the signed Release of Information Form, which is part of the application on TADS, to your child's school as we request academic records. It takes about a week for the records to arrive.

Birth Certificate -- This must be uploaded on the TADS application. 

Immunization Records -- This must be uploaded on the TADS application. 

Readiness Assessment for Kindergarten -- Applicants accepted into Kindergarten will be asked to schedule a Kindergarten readiness assessment and meeting with the Kindergarten teacher. After an acceptance notice has gone out, the Kindergarten teacher will call to arrange a meeting.

Parents of PreK students may re-register their children for Kindergarten. Notice of re-registration will be announced. A new application is not required.

Applicants for Grades 1 & 2

After the school has received a birth certificate and Form 19, the school may contact the parents to schedule a date for a readiness assessment.

Admissions Letters -- An acceptance notice may go out to parents after all application requirements have been met and considered by the Admissions Committee.

After Acceptance -- Enrollment 

Enrollment -- There are two steps in the enrollment process: Registration and Tuition Payment Agreement.

1. Registration -- The acceptance notice from TADS will include instructions on paying a registration fee and enrolling your child for the school year. 

2. Tuition Agreement -- You will receive a proposed tuition agreement after you have completed the parish verification form. The form must be completed each year in order to receive the discount for Catholic parishioners. After you have completed registration and the parish-verification form, you will receive a proposed tuition agreement in an email from TADS. You must open the email, follow the link to your TADS account, select the tuition payment plan, and submit the tuition agreement.
