Admissions Process

The admissions process begins approximately one year prior to entry. Parents and legal guardians are encouraged to attend a parent orientation tour, made by appointment online or through the admissions office. Admissions tours are held from October to February on Wednesdays from 9:30-10:30 am.

Our Preschool has a rolling admissions process. Tours are by appointment and can be scheduled through admissions@saint-marks.org. It is your prerogative to have your child join the tour.
