Admissions Process
Our admissions process begins by building a relationship with your family and is designed to help us get to know each girl personally. Our goal is to make the application process as streamlined as possible. The Admissions Team is here to guide you through every step of the way with personalized attention, and we look forward to working with your family!

Admissions decisions are based upon entrance testing, previous and current school records, personal interviews, and availability of openings. As a convenience to our applicant families, we utilize an electronic notification and enrollment process.

We thrive on relationships and love meeting prospective students and families in person, but the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for physical distancing requires us to approach the admissions process differently this year.  While St. Catherine's is open with on-campus teaching and learning, the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff is paramount; therefore we are unable to welcome visitors to campus.  Since we can't meet in person, we are committed to meeting you virtually and assure you that we are here to partner with you.

We are now accepting applications for Fall 2021. While the application process will be different than it has been in the past, now is the perfect time to submit an application.

List of 4 items.

  • Application for Junior Kindergarten

    • Junior Kindergarten (JK) is geared toward girls who are at least 4 years old by September 30 of the entering school year.
    • Submit an online application and non-refundable $50 fee. Once you submit an application, the Admissions Office will send you supplemental information in order to complete the application process.

    St. Catherine’s requires two assessments as a part of the junior kindergarten application process.

    WPPSI-IV (Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence Fourth Edition)
    The WPPSI-IV is administered by a licensed psychologist.  Due to COVID-19 protocols, we are unable to offer this service on our campus at this time.  

    Readiness Testing
    In adherence with school COVID-19 protocols, we are modifying this group assessment for the 2021-2022 admissions cycle. We will share details regarding readiness activities with applicant families in late fall 2020.
  • Admissions Notifications

    First-round admissions notifications will be sent electronically for 2021-2022 enrollment on February 19, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. 

    Admissions decisions will continue on a rolling basis after this date.
St. Catherine's admits qualified students without regard to race, color, religion, sexual orientation or national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to the students by the School.
