Step-by-step Instructions

How To Apply

Step One

Application Materials Submission

Teacher Recommendation Form

  • PreK & K
    Please submit this form to your child’s current teacher. Teachers should send the completed form directly to St. Peter’s School.
  • Grade 1 – 4
    Please submit this form to your child’s current teacher. Teachers should send the completed form directly to St. Peter’s School.
  • Grade 5 – Grade 8
    Please submit copies of this form to both your child’s current Math and English teachers. Teachers should send the completed forms directly to St. Peter’s School.

Records Release Form

  • For Grade 1 – 8 Applicants Only
    Please sign the Release of Records Form and submit to your child’s current school.  This gives your permission for a copy of your child’s transcript from the prior two academic years to be mailed from the current school to St. Peter’s School.

Step Two

Scheduling a “Visit”

All of the Admissions visits this year will be conducted virtually. When you have completed the online application, you will be contacted by the school’s Office of Admissions to schedule a time to meet.  Each child’s virtual meeting is designed to be developmentally appropriate so we can get to know your child. The Admissions team will also coordinate a time for a brief parent/guardian meeting. 

  • Preschool (3-year-olds) and Prekindergarten (4-year-olds) children visit individually with a teacher for a Zoom playdate. 
  • Kindergarten children visit virtually in the Prekindergarten classroom, for a morning circle or story time with their peers. 
  • First through Eighth Grade students visit virtually, for a portion of the day, in a classroom of their peers.

Step Three

Admission Decisions

When your child has completed the play day or visit day, their application materials and the feedback gathered from St. Peter’s teachers and staff who observe and interact with your child on their visit day will go to the school’s Admissions Committee for consideration.  At the end of January, when re-enrollment is completed for current families, the Admissions Office will contact new families to share the admissions decision.

Families may apply later in the Admissions season during the Spring or Summer months. Admissions decisions for these applicants will be conveyed on a rolling basis, roughly two to three weeks after the visit day.
