Please use this link to begin your registration for St. Mary School German Village and our Admissions Director, Ticia Dillon will contact you.

Admissions Procedure

The following components will be used to determine final acceptance for St. Mary Catholic School.

  • Completed registration on FACTS

  • Current school records and recommendation form from teacher/principal (will be sent to former school directly) are required. School personnel may contact personnel from student’s present school to acquire and verify information regarding academic areas, conduct, effort, and attendance.

  • We accept all new students on a probationary basis. We will do all we can to help your child adjust to our surroundings and curriculum. It is important for your child to be cooperative in his/her schoolwork and behavior. Continued behavior issues may result in your child being asked to withdraw. After a trial period of one academic quarter, we will re-evaluate to make sure that our program is appropriate to meet your child's needs

THE COST OF CATHOLIC EDUCATION

We understand that funding your child’s education often requires sacrifices. We never want the cost of a Catholic education to prohibit a student from attending St. Mary German Village. Therefore, we have many financial assistance and scholarship opportunities available for our students! Some of these are listed below. For more information, please contact our school office. All financial assistance must be applied for and verified in FACTS by March 15 of the spring prior to fall enrollment.

  • Diocesan Tuition Assistance

  • Ed Choice

  • Ed Choice Expansion

  • Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarships

  • Guardian Angel Tuition Assistance

  • Other private sources
