Admissions Information

Pre-K & Kindergarten

Students applying for Pre-K must be 4 years old by September 1 and students applying for Kindergarten must be 5 years old by September 1.

Upon receipt of an admissions application, prospective applicants for Pre-K and Kindergarten will be assessed for readiness using a predetermined 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.

Grades 1 – 8

Students applying for grade 1-8 admissions are offered a shadow day. They are evaluated on the basis of report cards, standardized test scores, results of STAR reading and math assessments, and their shadow day at St. Peter’s School.

Scholarship & Financial Aid

Living Our Catholic Faith Scholarship

The Living Our Catholic Faith Scholarship is offered to registered, participating members of any Catholic parish in the Archdiocese of Washington and is $2,300 per student. The scholarship form must be signed by your parish priest and documentation of the sacraments (i.e. baptismal certificate) must be submitted to the school office in order to qualify.

Financial Aid

Financial Aid is offered through the Archdiocese of Washington and is need-based. Documentation, such as tax documents, are required for evaluation. Families may apply beginning in early October through early February.

*Must create a TADS account and apply for admission before applying for Financial Aid.

Tuition & Fees

Please note that unlike many other Catholic schools, we charge no additional universal fees, such as book, registration, and technology fees. This approach gives everyone a clearer picture of the cost of a St. Peter’s School education.

2024-25 Tuition Rate:


An enrollment deposit of $500 per family is due in May to secure your seats. This deposit will be deducted from your tuition bill. Tuition payments for the 2023-24 school year will begin in June of 2023.
