Preschool, Elementary & Middle School
Preparing for Successful Admissions

At St. Monica, we recognize that choosing the right school for your child is a significant decision. Our goal through the admissions process is to develop a thorough understanding of each student who applies while providing an opportunity for you to experience the school and connect with our community.

Enroll at St. Monica in just five easy steps!

Step One: Parent Visit

Visit our campus and take a tour of the school.

Please schedule a school tour online or call the school office at (206) 232-5432 to schedule your visit. We look forward to showing you our campus and answering any questions you may have.


Step Two: Application

Complete and submit the Application for Admission.


Step Three: Assessment

Early Learners – Applicants may be invited to visit for an assessment, to determine readiness and class placement. Preschool applicants must be three years old and fully potty-trained on or before August 31 of the year that your child will enter preschool.

Kindergarten – Kindergarten applicants may be invited to visit for an assessment to determine readiness. Washington State specifies that a child must be five years old on or before August 31 of the year your child will enter Kindergarten.

PreK / K Early Learning Assessment will be held on Wednesdays from 2:30-3:30pm by invitation on January 17th, February 14th, March 20th, and April 17th.

Elementary & Middle School – To ensure a good fit between the applicant and St. Monica, and also ease the student's transition into a new school, we recommend applicants tour the school with their parents. Applicants will be asked to submit copies of prior standardized test scores and report cards for math and reading placement prior to enrollment. St. Monica School staff will also administer a math and reading placement test during the first week of school to ensure proper placement at the beginning of the school year.

High School - Applicants outside of St. Monica Catholic School are invited to visit as a Crusader for the Day.

Financial Assistance

St. Monica does have a limited amount of financial aid available each year. In addition to our parish/school-supported financial assistance, we also participate in the Fulcrum Foundation program to provide financial support to all families who qualify.

The Fulcrum Tuition Assistance Grant program is designed for families that are currently enrolled or that are applying for the next school year at any Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Seattle. Each year, a family must apply through FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment to qualify for a grant and all awards are made based on financial need.

The tuition assistance grant program is closed for the 2023-2024 school year.

We transferred to the Crusader community for the classical education and St. Monica has exceed our expectations. My children come home so happy and excited from what they are learning at school. We hear about the great conversations they are having in class in various subjects, and the truth and beauty that seeps out in all. They are thinking, processing and articulating in a way we have not yet experienced. The classical approach to education has been a huge blessing for our family and the formation of our children.
