Applicant Visit and Admission Testing
Preschool & Pre-Kindergarten – Our Early Learning program has multiple classrooms that each enjoy a mix of ages, academic levels, gender and social skills, giving them a balance of academic abilities, personalities, and interests. This balancing encourages “students teaching students” and “students learning from students”, which is a precursor to the STEM + the Arts curriculum and Project Based Learning model utilized throughout the rest of their time at St. Monica Catholic School. The classes join together for events such as holiday parties, concerts, Mass, 3rd grade buddies and visits with our Pastor. All classes advance simultaneously academically, using the curriculum developed by our Pre-K Director. 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, in February, and will be assessed by our Pre-K Director, Mrs. Birashk to determine readiness and class placement. Please email Mrs. Birashk directly if you have any questions or would like to schedule a visit.
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 and six years old on or before August 31st of the year that he/she would enter first grade. Applicants will visit in a small group setting in early February. During that day the student will be assessed. Individual visit days can also be arranged as needed.
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. If current year standardized test scores or a prior year report card is unavailable, they will be assessed during their visit.
Please email our Registrar or call the School Office at (206) 232-5432 to schedule your visit.
