Admissions Process

Information Packet
Many families would like to receive hard copy information about our school, and we are happy to send an information packet upon request. Our information packet includes information about the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program, our admissions process, and tuition information are included as well. You are encouraged, but not required, to review the information packet prior to scheduling a tour.  Please select the yellow tab to the right of your screen to “Request More Information” through our Online Inquiry system.

Parent Visit/Tour
We like to have the chance to meet with parents in order to explain the advantages of our program as well as familiarize you with the specifics of our school day.  It is also a time for you to see the classroom where your child would be spending the majority of his or her day.  We want each prospective family to learn as much as possible about St. Paul’s in order to make the best decision for their children.  This is also our opportunity to determine together if St. Paul’s is a “right fit” for your family and vice-versa.

Applications are accepted up to two years prior to desired enrollment. In fact, we encourage families to apply as soon as they believe they may have an interest in St. Paul’s for their child(ren) as space can fill up quite quickly, especially for the Early Toddler through Kindergarten programs.  Priority status is given to siblings of currently enrolled students, to parishioners of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, and to St. Paul’s Episcopal School alumni. The deadline for these preferences/priority statuses is December 31 of the calendar year prior to desired enrollment year.

Student Screening ~ If you are applying for preschool, the school reserves the right to request to meet your child in person before extending an offer of admissions. If your child has attended another school, we request a teacher recommendation.

For students entering Kindergarten and up, each child may be given an age appropriate standardized test at the discretion of the Admissions Office and the appropriate faculty member(s).  For Kindergarten, the assessment will cover developmental readiness.  For grades 1-6, the material will cover subject matter in reading and math.  Students may also be required to provide a writing sample and give an oral reading.  Testing will be performed by school personnel, if applicable.

References ~ A student referral form will be sent to your child’s current school/daycare via email upon completion of the Online Application.  You may help us in our process by asking the director/teacher to return the form promptly.  Student records may also be requested. The Admissions Committee must receive the teacher recommendation form, along with report cards and transcripts (if applicable), in order for the admissions process to continue.
