Admitted Students


In order to secure an offer of acceptance, an applicant’s family has 30 days to complete an Enrollment Registration Form through TADS and to submit a non-refundable Tuition Deposit of $1,000 which is applied toward the following year's tuition. Please also note that prior to attending school, all students will need to submit a signed acknowledgment of the Archdiocese of Washington's Immunization Policy. 

Tuition payments can be made in one, two, or ten installments. If paying in one or two installments, the first installment is due in July, and the balance in January.  A monthly payment plan with a minimal processing fee is offered to families wishing to pay the full year’s tuition over a period of 10 months, starting in July.

As always, we are here to answer any and all of your admissions process questions.  Please feel free to contact us directly for additional information or assistance you may need.  We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
