Admissions Process

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 (We are not currently scheduling tours at this time.)

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.

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 in a small group setting and assessed 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 – To ensure there is a good fit with the student and the school and 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.
