What is the registration process?

We accept registration forms year round. To be considered in the first round of seat assignments, please return your completed registration form by December 15th. Registration forms received after that date will be considered for open seats remaining after the first round of registration.

Registration forms can be downloaded online. Simply complete the form and drop it off or mail it to the school. There is no fee to apply.

Is there a priority for registration?

Fifth Grade Science Registration Application InformationThe order of registration is as follows:

Families of Saint Michael School will participate in an open registration. This registration will be held in December and is for our Nursery, Pre-Kindergarten and/or Kindergarten program. Tuition and fees must be current.

Families who have been registered for at least six (6) months and participate in the Offertory Awareness Program at Saint Michael Parish who are interested in Nursery and Pre-Kindergarten will participate in a lottery (during December/January). Names will be drawn from submitted application forms received prior to registration for any available seats. If no seats are available, a waiting list will be established.

All other families of children entering Nursery and Pre-Kindergarten will participate in a lottery (during December/January). Names will be drawn from submitted and complete application forms received prior to registration for any available seats. If no seats are available, a waiting list will be established.

Families of children interested in Kindergarten through Grade 8 may register at any time during the year. If no seats are available, names will be added to the waiting list.

My child has been assigned a seat, what next?

Once you have received notification of a seat for your child, you will need to provide the school with a copy of your child's Baptism certificate (if applicable), birth certificate and Mass. Health Form (forms available in the office). There is a one time, non-refundable $200 registration fee for new families registering at Saint Michael School. This fee is only required when a seat has been made available for your child.

What happens the following year?

As long as tuition is current and you have completed the necessary paperwork, there is a seat for him/her for the following year in the next grade.

What if we are transferring from another school?

Send in a completed registration form and call for availability of seats in that grade. Please be aware that entrance into Saint Michael School is based on good academic and conduct standings. This includes teacher recommendations and Saint Michael School Academic Testing.

What is the waiting list?

The waiting list is a management tool that allows us to store names and phone numbers of interested students, while eliminating the need for re-registration for students interested in Nursery through grade 8.
