Kindergarten Application Process

Admission to Kindergarten

St. Mary’s Episcopal School offers a co-educational experience for children of kindergarten age (turning 5 by September 30 is the Virginia state requirement.)  Before acceptance, children will be given a readiness test to determine placement in kindergarten or alternately in junior kindergarten.  If a child is placed in junior kindergarten after readiness testing, he or she will have an opportunity to be in the Kindergarten the following year.

Application Process

Applications may be submitted throughout the school year.  A one-time application fee of $50.00 is due with each application.  Acceptance letters, for new students, will be emailed by the first week of March for the upcoming school year and thereafter, the first week of each month until classes are filled.  Siblings of current students and parishioners are given priority as applicants. There will be a deposit of $800.00 to secure a place in the class. 

Our online application can be found here: Online Kindergraten Application.


From September to May – $7200.00
