Admissions

Welcome to St. Patrick School!

The Admission process begins by sending in the completed diocesan application with the $50 application fee, and the other forms and documents listed below.  We process applications and register students in the order in which they are received*, so taking care of this step will ensure you the best chance at securing a spot in our school.  After that process is begun we will contact you about acceptance and any other necessary forms or fees that are required.  For a complete breakdown of the expenses associated with enrolling in our school, please visit the tuition page.

At any time in the process, please feel free to contact us about any questions or concerns you may have.  We are here to help you and to help you make the best decision for your family.  And if you haven’t already done so, please contact the school to set up a Shadow Visit so that your children can experience a day in the life of a St. Pat’s student!

Each application must be accompanied by the following:

  1.  A non-refundable $50.00 registration fee per student with check payable to “St. Patrick School”. This fee is non-refundable and due at the time of registration.
  2.  A copy of your child’s birth certificate.
  3.  A copy of your child’s Baptismal (Catholics only), Reconciliation and Eucharist Certificates (if applicable).
  4.  All preschool, kindergarten and new students must have a Commonwealth of Virginia School Entrance Health Form. (Completed and submitted prior to the beginning of the school year.)

  6.  A copy of your child’s most recent report card including comments and the two previous academic years’ report cards
  7.  A copy of your child’s current standardized test scores plus two previous years, if applicable.
  8.  Copy of Custody decree (if applicable).

*PLEASE NOTE – We are a Roman Catholic parochial school sponsored by St. Patrick Parish.  Therefore, part of our mission is to consider applications with a priority given first to active St. Patrick parishioners, then to active parishioners from other parishes, then to the general population.  After separated based on these priorities, applications are processed in the order they are received.

After your application is complete, you will be notified about acceptance and registration.  Please continue on to the next page to read about the tuition costs, other expenses, and financial aid options.

St. Patrick Catholic School admits students of any race, color, and national origin.
