Important dates for our admissions process.

Welcoming Junior Kindergarten through 8th Grade Students

Acceptance to St. Mary’s Catholic School is based upon space availability and contingent upon a review of the student’s readiness and academic records.

Re-enrollment for current students begins in January (January 15 – January 31) after which time registration will be open to new enrollments from the parish.  Enrollment for non-parishioner Catholics will begin the third week of February.  Enrollment will open to the community in general on March 1.

Applicants for new enrollments will be accepted continuously.  Applications will be considered for openings on a first-come, first evaluated basis per the above time-schedule.

Registration forms and fees are not accepted unless an opening exists in the appropriate grade.  Students are added to a waiting list on a first-come, first-served basis according to the criteria listed above.

Mid-year Applications

Students wishing to enroll at St. Mary’s during the year should contact the office.  Students moving into the area will be evaluated and offered enrollment if openings are available.  Preference is given to students whose siblings have been accepted at St. Mary’s and students transferring from an out-of-area Catholic School.


Contracts regulating school attendance are required by the Diocese of Richmond.
