3 year old- 2 day per week program
4 year old full day Kindergarten readiness program
Our Pre-School programs are part of St. Mary's Academy. As parents, you are welcome and encouraged to join our Parent's Club and become involved in their activities. You will receive newsletters informing you of what is happening here at St. Mary's as a school community. Your child will be included in any special events that may happen during the day if it is a day he/she is in attendance.
Enrollment in our Pre-School program does not give automatic admission into our Kindergarten program. There is a policy of acceptance of students into our Kindergarten program which states:
Acceptance of siblings, from those families already enrolled in our Pre-School program and families who are affiliated with St Mary's Church, will receive first consideration. If there are openings after these children are registered, then our Pre-K children will be accepted as applications are received."
Pre-School begins the week after Labor Day and continues through June. Pre-School will have the same vacation periods and holidays as the elementary school children. Specific dates are to be found on the Events Calendar, which you will receive the day of orientation. If there are any changes in the calendar, you will be notified.
