  • Admission Parent Programs—Parents and guardians of Kindergarten applicants may also meet their tour requirement by attending one of our three Parent Programs. Please note, a second appointment for an interview will be necessary. Parent Program dates are:

January 16, 2015 is the application deadline for all applicants.

  • Standardized Testing and Supporting Materials—Kindergarten applicants are required to submit WPPSI-IV results. You will want to schedule this testing in a timely manner. Parents or guardians should also arrange for current teachers to submit a Independent Education Common Recommendation Form directly to St. Patrick’s. Deadlines for receipt are January 23, 2015 for all candidates.  

  • Applicant Visit (required)—Children participate in hour-long, small-group playdate visits in January and early February. These visits are scheduled after receipt of an application.  The Admission Office will call you to arrange the playdate.
