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

When you have completed the application packet of materials you will be contacted by the school’s Office of Admissions to schedule a visit so we can get to know your child.  This will allow us to observe, assess and recommend placement. The Office of Admissions will also coordinate a time for a brief parent/guardian meeting with a member of the Admissions team about your child.

Preschool (3-year-olds) and Prekindergarten (4-year-olds)  children visit in small groups with other candidates their age, during scheduled Play Days:

  • Saturday, December 14
  • Saturday, January 11
  • Friday, January 17

Kindergarten children visit for a morning with their peers in the Prekindergarten classroom.

First through Eighth Grade students visit for a full day in the class with 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, once 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.

(Admissions Non-Discrimination disclaimer blurb should go a the end of this information. I’m sure there is a legal version of what we should use for this.)
