Now accepting applications for the 2021-2022 school year.
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. Please request 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 currently being scheduled after school hours at 3:30 or 4:00 pm. by appointment only.

Step Two: Application

Complete and submit the Application for Admission, and we will contact you to set up your child’s class visit and readiness assessment.

Step Three: Student Visit and 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 31st 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 31st of the year that your child would enter Kindergarten.

Grades 1 through 8th – Due to Covid restrictions, we cannot offer applicant visits in the classrooms at this time. To ensure there is a good fit with the student and the school and ease the transition, we recommend that applicants visit the parent for the school tour. We will need copies of prior standardized test scores and report cards before enrollment for math class placement.

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 to offer 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. A family must apply each year through FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment to qualify for a grant—all awards are made based on financial need.
