The Application Process

Thank you for considering Saint Benedict Catholic School for your child.  The Admissions process is more than just an application.  The Admissions process allows you to get to know the school and the school to get to know you and your student. 

  • Request Information - The quickest way to request information is to submit an online inquiry.  When your inquiry is received our Admissions Director, Lisa Yost, will reach out to you and send you a packet of information.

  • Schedule a Visit - We have two formal Open Houses and are happy to schedule tours during the school day.

  • Submit an application - Complete the online application and send a $50 non-refundable application fee. 

Once your application is received the next steps vary by grade.

Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten

An Evaluation Form completed by the student's school is required for applicants currently attending preschool.   When filling out the online application you will be prompted to provide an email address to which the form will be sent.  Hard copies of the form are available.  The form should come directly from the preschool to Saint Benedict.

All applicants for Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten are assessed at  Saint Benedict.  This is normally done on two scheduled dates, allowing the teachers to observe the applicant in both an individual and group setting.  Alternatives can be arranged for late and out of town applications.

1st Grade

Complete a Records Release Form  to allow Saint Benedict to request information from the applicant's current school.

Complete a "Shadow Day" - Contact Lisa Yost to schedule.

2nd - 8th Grade

Complete a Records Release Form to allow Saint Benedict to request information from the applicant's current school.

Complete a "Shadow Day" - Contact Lisa Yost to schedule.

Complete an assessment at the school - This can be easily accomplished during the "Shadow Day" but may be scheduled separately.

Summer Applications

Summer applications, although out of cycle, will be considered.  Unfortunately as school is not in session the "Shadow Day" is not possible and will be replaced by an alternative activity, determined by the student's age and availability of teachers.

Acceptance is contingent upon the evaluation of academic records, on-site assessments, and student visit. There will be no distinction made as to race, sex, or nationality. Catholic parents who are active members of Saint Benedict Church are given first consideration, followed by Catholics from other parishes, and then Non-Catholic students.  Some preference is given to siblings of current students.
