Application Process

Step 1: Submit an Application

Applications for the 2023-2024 school year may be submitted through the online application portal. In the portal, parents will create student and family profiles, upload required documents, and pay the non-refundable application fee of $50.

Please gather the following required documents* before applying:
Birth Certificate
Baptismal Certificate or First Communion, if applicable
School Records (Report Cards, Transcripts, and Test Scores)
Immunization Records – St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School follows all federal, state, and diocesan guidelines covering immunizations. The school must obtain a current immunization record before a student is formally enrolled. Required immunizations are listed in the School Handbook. 

*Please note that our Admissions Committee will not review incomplete applications or render a decision until all required documents are received and the applicant’s file is complete.


Before applying for Kindergarten or First Grade, please contact the school office.

Step 2: Teacher Recommendation

In addition to the online application, your child’s current teacher will need to complete an online evaluation to complete the application process. As you fill out your application, you will need to provide your current teacher’s email address. He or she will complete the online evaluation that will be submitted directly to St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School.

Step 3: Schedule Admissions Assessment

As part of the application process, prospective students applying to 1st-8th grade are required to take a STAR Reading and STAR Math test. This enables us to evaluate the child’s academic needs and ensure appropriate placement. These Assessments take place at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School and will be scheduled in early summer. Prospective students applying to PreK and Kindergarten are required to visit and participate in an early childhood assessment.
