Saint Peter's School Admissions
Important Admissions Disclaimer:
Students applying to Pre-Kindergarten should be 4 years old by September 1.
Children entering Kindergarten must be 5 years old by September1.
At the time of registration, all new students seeking admissions to grades 1-8 are evaluated on the basis of current standardized test scores, report cards, results from the STAR reading and math assessments and their shadow day at Saint Peter's School. Pre-K and Kindergarten teachers will evaluate all potential students for readiness using a pre-determined, standardized assessment.
In an effort to best serve the school and keep the student population at maximum efficiency, the principal, in collaboration with the Pre-K and Kindergarten teachers, may accept or decline new students outside the date of birth parameters as stated above, in extenuating circumstances.
If you have questions about the Admissions Process, please contact the School Office at (301) 843-1955.
