Apply to St. Bede

We are delighted that you are applying to St. Bede’s Catholic School. It is our goal to make the procedure as smooth as possible for you and your child.

The St. Bede Catholic School admission process begins in January. Current families receive “Intent to Return” forms. The school uses these to determine how many openings are likely for the following year. New families pick up applications in the school office. Teachers administer qualifying tests in February, and we request transfer students’ materials from the schools the have previously attended. We make most decisions by the beginning of March and notify families by mail.


New Student Admission
  • Qualified Catholic children from families registered and active in St. Bede Parish for one or more years
  • Qualified Catholic children who have siblings already attending St. Bede Catholic School
  • Qualified Catholic children from families not registered or inactive in St. Bede Parish
  • Qualified Catholic Children from families registered in another parish
  • Qualified non-Catholic children

We determine admission to kindergarten by two additional factors:

  • Your child must be at least five years of age by September 1 of the academic year for which you are seeking admission.
  • Your child must demonstrate developmental readiness as determined by the pre-kindergarten screening and professional judgment. 
    • It is no favor to push children ahead of their developmental readiness.

Continued enrollment in St. Bede Catholic School for each school year is contingent on fulfillment of all financial and contractual agreements; this includes service hour and scrip obligations. Families with outstanding obligations may lose priority for space in a class.

The school reserves the right to deny readmission to any family delinquent in tuition and/or who has not fulfilled all contractual obligations or failed to support the mission, philosophy, objectives, and/or policies of St. Bede Catholic School.
