Admissions Process



Choosing a school is an important decision. We would be glad to answer any questions you might have during the admissions process.

1. Take a Tour
See our teachers and students in action! Please contact Enrollment Management Coordinator Amy Myles at 301-447-3165 or to schedule a tour of the school and/or interview with our principal during the school week (you may also call the front office at 301-447-3161).

2. Apply for Admission
Complete the Admission Application (one per student). Submit application, other required documentation and the $30.00 application fee (non-refundable). Visit the "Applications" tab above for access to the Admissions Application and other related forms.

3. Student Shadow Day
After review of Application information, your child would be invited to “Shadow” for a day. Your child would visit their respective classroom for the morning (if Pre-Kindergarten) or the school day (if Kindergarten through grade 8) and interact with their peers. During this visit, a member of our Resource Team would do a Screening Assessment to be used in evaluation of the child’s current academic abilities. We would like to schedule a time for you to meet with our principal, Sr. Brenda Monahan, D.C. on this day.

4. Acceptance
Information from the respective teacher regarding the child’s classroom visit and the results of the screening will be forwarded to the principal, Sr. Brenda. She will evaluate the assessment and a letter will be sent to the family. You will receive registration papers with the acceptance letter and have 2 weeks to complete them and officially register your child(ren).

5. Registration

Completed forms and applicable deposit must be received in order to hold child’s place on the roster for the upcoming school year.

Applications for the current school year are considered on an individual basis depending upon space available and family need. Applications are accepted for the upcoming school year beginning the preceding January.

At the time of application the following must be presented:

Age Requirements

Prospective Pre-K students must be four years of age by September 1st.  Prospective Kindergarten students must be five years of age by September 1st.

Mother Seton School follows early entrance policies established by the local public schools.

Once the approval has been granted by the public schools, parents may contact Mother Seton School for early admission.
