Admissions process

St. James Preschool is an academic year program, September to mid-June. To be eligible for enrollment in Fall 2024, children must be 2, 3, or 4 before September 1, 2024.

It’s important to us that you determine that St. James is a good fit for your family before applying for your child. We will host two open houses to help you make this determination, and require that you attend one before submitting an application.

Steps for applying:
  1. Sign up to attend a Tour or Open House.
  2. After attending the Tour or Open House, complete the online application and submit the non-refundable $75 fee. Submission deadline is January 31, 2024. Application fee can be paid online via Paypal.
  3. Admission notifications will be emailed early March 5, 2024. If offered a place, families have one week to secure enrollment with a signed agreement and deposit.

St. James Preschool, a non-sectarian school, does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sexual orientation, national and ethnic origin, and/or religious background in the administration of our educational policies, admissions policies, financial assistance, and school-administered programs.
