All prospective students are required to attend a family tour with our Enrollment Director. Tours will reopen in October 2022 for the 23-24 school year.
Every family is required to attend a tour with their child
Classroom observations and academic evaluations (grades 1-8), are required if the family decides to continue the enrollment process after the tour.
We encourage engaged parishioners with children in rising Pre-K through 8th grade to tour campus and become acquainted with the Old St Mary's School community!
Application and Enrollment Process
Following a tour, observation, and evaluation (for 1-8), families will be notified of acceptance. Once a child has been accepted, a non-refundable enrollment deposit of $1,500.00 and the submission of a birth certificate will be required in order to confirm the child’s placement. This is due within two weeks of acceptance and the payment will be applied to the family’s tuition.
Old St. Mary’s School offers a faith-based education and children will be exposed to the values, customs, rituals, and teachings of the Catholic faith.
Any child entering school must be in compliance with the requirements of the State of Illinois regarding age of admission. Preschool students must be three or four years old on or before September 1. Students entering kindergarten must be five on or before September 1. Students starting 1st grade must be six on or before September 1 etc.
