Follow these three steps if you are just starting your Catholic schools journey:
Admissions Step One: School Visit
We invite prospective parents to explore our UPK, Pre-K, Kindergarten and Grades 1-8 elementary school programs by scheduling a call or in-person visit with any of our schools. A school representative will explain how our classrooms and technology are set up, and review our health and safety measures. Click here to set up a call or in-person visit with one of our schools.
NOTE: due to COVID-19 Safety Protocols, we are unable to host tours during school hours while students and teachers are in the school buildings. Individual tours can be set up between 2:30 and 4:30pm, subject to applicable policies at each school.
