Applications, including the family interview, must be completed by February 15. After February 15 any remaining openings will be filled on a rolling admission basis.

Tuition and Fees
In late January of each year, the St. Mary’s School Board of Trustees publishes tuition and the annual family registration fee for the upcoming academic year.
The parents/guardians of accepted applicants complete an enrollment contract once tuition has been set for the year. This enrollment contract accompanies an annual family registration fee which holds a student’s place in the class. Pre-registration begins in February. The registration fee is non-refundable unless an applicant is also waiting for a financial aid package. Tuition grants, however, will not be awarded without a signed enrollment contract on file. A completed enrollment contract is an agreement to pay tuition for the entire school year.
St. Mary’s offers three tuition payment options: a) eleven monthly installments; b) two semi-annual payments; or c) one annual payment.
Tuition Grants (financial aid)
We encourage families to apply for a need-based tuition grant. Parents interested in applying for financial aid should so indicate on the application. Financial aid is determined by family need as demonstrated by the submission of the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) to the Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) program. The submission deadline for all tuition grant forms, including copies of tax documents, is March 22. Financial aid awards are generally made in early May.
Optional Shadow Day
Many families find it helpful to have the applicant "shadow" a host student for a day to get a first-hand look at what St. Mary's is like. This is not a requirement, but we are happy to offer this opportunity. If you are interested please contact the Admission Office.
Admission decisions will be mailed out by mid-February. Tuition grant decisions will be mailed by May 15. You will be notified by mail and will have two weeks to return the enrollment contract sent with acceptance letters.
After February 15 any remaining openings will be filled on a rolling admission basis. For these applications, the Admission Committee will mail decisions generally within two weeks of the interview.
