Admissions Overview, Policies and Information


Admissions Information

Families admitted into the school community are accepted on the basis of a personal interview with the principal who judges their interest and motivation to be in accord with the highest order of Catholic education. St. Mary Parish School respects the dignity of every child; therefore, neither race, color, religion, nor nationality will prevent a child from being accepted into the parish school.

In-House Registration

In early January of each year, families of current St. Mary students will receive a survey to complete indicating if your child(ren) will return for the next school year. In addition, any new student you wish to enroll should be submitted through the survey as well. Once we receive notification of a new student from a current family, the office will send out a registration form. New registrations will be accepted in the order in which they are received until the recommended class size of 25 has been met has been met. Up to 5 additional registrants per class will be placed on a waiting list.
