Registration & Admissions Information

Open Enrollment for 2021-2022 will begin on January 31st. Our new application will be digital and live starting on the 31st as well.


For more information please call the school office at 614-444-8994 and ask for our Admissions Director, Ticia Dillon.

Our goal is to see that each child meets success with our program. Families will be notified when the admission procedure is completed. You will then receive a handbook that will outline uniforms, discipline policies, procedures, etc. 

Admissions Procedure

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

  • Completed registration materials

  • 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.

  • We accept the Ohio EdChoice Scholarship. If your child attends a qualifying public or charter, he or she may be eligible to receive a scholarship to our school.


We understand that funding your child’s education often requires sacrifices, and sometimes, families do not think that a Catholic, private education is possible because of the cost.  We never want the cost of a Catholic education to prohibit a student from attending.  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. 

  • Parishioners:  A $1,000 subsidy is given to each child whose family is a participating member of our parish.

  • Ohio EdChoice:  Any students who are currently attending or assigned to a designated public or charter school are most likely eligible for this $4,650 scholarship.  To apply, please contact our school office for a copy of the official application.  The list of designated public schools can be found here.

  • Ohio EdChoice Expansion Scholarship:  This scholarship is available for families who are low-income qualified and covers the complete cost of tuition. 

  • Parish Tuition Assistance:  Each year, thousands of dollars of tuition assistance are given to our families based on special circumstances and family need. 

  • Diocesan Tuition Assistance:  Each family is also welcome to apply for tuition assistance that is given through the Diocese of Columbus.  To apply, please complete the 'Grant and Aid' application using your FACTS account.
