Admissions Process

Preparing for Successful Admissions

At St. Monica, we recognize that choosing the right school for your child is a very important decision. Our goal is to help you and your child be successful and make the process as easy as possible. There are a number of steps to follow, beginning with a school visit. If you have any questions, please contact our Director of Marketing or call the School Office at (206) 232-5432.

Step One: Parent Visit

We are proud of our school and our students. We would love to show you the campus and answer any questions you may have. Please plan to visit our campus and take a personal tour of the school. Please request a school tour online or call the School Office at (206) 232-5432 to schedule your visit.

Step Two: Application

Once you complete the Application for Admission will contact you to set-up your child’s class visit and readiness assessment.

Step Three: Student Visit and Assessment

Early Learners – Preschool applicants must be three years old, on or before August 31st of the year that your child would enter preschool. Applicants will be invited to visit in a small group setting and will be assessed by our Pre-K Director, Mrs. Birashk to determine readiness and class placement.

Kindergarten – Washington State specifies that a child must be five years old on, or before August 31st of the year that your child would enter Kindergarten. Applicants will be invited to visit for an individual readiness assessment by our Kindergarten teacher, Ms. Allain once the application is received.

Grades 1 through 8th – To ensure there is a good fit with the student and the school, and to ease the transition, we recommend that applicants visit for a half-day of classes in their current grade, with a student host. We will need copies of prior standardized test scores and report cards. Please email our Registrar or call the School Office at (206) 232-5432 to schedule your visit.

Step Four: Enrollment

Once your child is accepted to attend St. Monica Catholic School, our Registrar will email you the Enrollment link with all the necessary forms to enroll. We look forward to working with you through this process.
