Preparing for Successful Admissions

At St. Monica, we recognize that choosing the right school for your child is a significant decision. Our goal is to help you and your child be successful and make the process as easy as possible. Enroll at St. Monica in just four easy steps! Contact our Advancement Director or call the School Office at (206) 232-5432 to get started.

Step One: Parent Visit

Visit our campus and take a tour of the school.

Schedule a Tour

Please schedule a school tour online or call the School Office at (206) 232-5432 to schedule your visit. We look forward to showing you our campus and answering any questions you may have. Tours are scheduled after school at 3:30 or 4:00 pm. by appointment only.

Step Two: Application
Submit an Application

Complete and submit the Application for Admission.

Step Three: Assessment

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

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

Grades 1 through 8th – Due to Covid restrictions, we cannot offer applicant visits in the classrooms at this time. However, to ensure a good fit between the student and the school and ease the transition, we recommend applicants visit the school with their parents for the tour. In addition, we will need copies of prior standardized test scores and report cards for math class placement before enrollment. We will additionally give a math placement test during the first week of school.

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.

Financial Assistance

St. Monica participates in the Fulcrum Foundation program and offers its parish/school-supported financial assistance. St. Monica has a limited amount of financial aid available each year.

The Fulcrum Tuition Assistance Grant program is designed for families and students currently enrolled or applying for the next school year in any Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Seattle. Each year, a family must apply through FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment to qualify for a grant—all awards are made based on financial need.

The tuition assistance grant program is closed for the 2022-2023 school year.
