Admissions Information

Interior_2_header.png

We are delighted that you are exploring the possibility of an Our Lady’s Academy education for your child! As a parent, one of the most important decisions you will make is where your child will attend school.

Our school serves students from PreKindergarten (for 3- and 4-year old children) through Grade 8. Our Lady’s Academy does not discriminate in the admission of students on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, or national origin. The admission of students takes into account that their needs, both academic and emotional, can be met and that each student’s enrollment at this academy will allow him or her to flourish. Students are accepted on an annual basis and throughout the academic year, pending seat availability in the grade to which you are applying, as well as a review of academic records from the school from which the student is transferring. Our Lady’s Academy welcomes you to join us at one of our Open Houses that are scheduled during the year to learn about a 21st century Our Lady’s Academy education.

Registration for New Families

STEP #1 
Your first step in enrolling at Our Lady’s Academy is to attend one of our Open Houses. At the Open House you will receive a tour of the school and have a chance to ask questions. If none of these dates work for your schedule, contact the school office to set up a tour. A visit will usually take about an hour, and you will learn about all that the academy has to offer its students. You will also be provided with a packet of information for review, which includes a tuition rate sheet for the school year in which you are interested.

STEP #2 
After your school visit, if you feel that Our Lady’s Academy is a good fit for your child, please schedule an Admissions appointment with the Principal so that we can discuss space availability, possible placement, and registration. Though we have rolling admissions during the year, our classes fill quickly beginning in February for the following school year. 

At your appointment you please bring:

  1. Your child's most recent academic report card (grades 1 and up)
  2. Any Individualized Education Plan information that your child may have

 *If your child is accepted, we will provide information about how to complete your online registration.

Re-Registration for Current Families

STEP #1 
If you are a current family at Our Lady’s Academy that is re-registering your child(ren), please be advised that all re-registrations and tuition are happening now.  All current families have received an email from the Principal reminding you that it is time for you to re-register your child(ren). 

Returning families receive a portion of the registration fee as a credit towards the upcoming academic year’s tuition, if they re-register by the established deadline of Friday, March 3, 2017. We ask all returning families to re-register as soon as possible, as we cannot guarantee a seat for your child if you re-register after April 28 for the upcoming academic year. Re-registering by this date gives the school office time to assess the number of seats we have for new families and also helps us to assess the needs of the academy for the upcoming academic year. After April 28, seats will be filled by qualifying new students. 

STEP #2

Ready to re-register? 

1. Complete Registration Form that was sent home via your child. Return to the office with your registration fee of $350.

Please edit each form in the re-enrollment packet, making sure all the information is updated. The online process should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Your information will be saved if you need to quit and come back later.
