Saint Mary’s School participates in federally funded Title I Bypass Program.  In Virginia, this program provides eligible students attending private schools with a supplemental instructional program of essential knowledge and skills.  Students are educated in a manner that assists them in developing and achieving grade appropriate expectations while fulfilling their potential.

The eligibility criteria to receive Title I services apply to all Virginia students, whether they are enrolled in public or private schools. If a student attends a private school, lives within the attendance area of a Title I public school and meets the specified educational criteria, the qualifying student in the private school may receive assistance in the form of Title I services. These services provide individualized and small group supplemental instruction in reading and math and give the students the opportunity to achieve success in their classroom.

Saint Mary’s hosts the bypass services provider for Virginia – NESI (NonPublic Educational Services, Inc.).    Additional information about eligibility and services provided can be found on the NESI VA Title I Bypass website.  NESI is a division of Catapult Learning, Inc.
