Welcome to St. Philomena School of the Sacred Heart!
We are excited to welcome and work with your family to determine if Saint Philomena School of the Sacred Heart is the best community for your child to grow and learn. We value the importance of parents finding the right "educational family" for their child. Our admissions process seeks to support and inform parents as we work together in the best interest of every child.
Families interested in learning more about Saint Philomena School of the Sacred Heart should submit an inquiry form through our school website to begin the process of learning more about our community.
All interested families are encouraged to schedule a private tour of the campus as an opportunity to visit our classes, meet students and faculty and witness the community and school culture.
The Admissions Process
Once a family has submitted an inquiry form and completed an initial conversation with the Director of Admissions, they may be invited to start a formal application process.
St. Philomena School has a rolling admissions process throughout the school year where space is available. As openings occur, parents of prospective students are contacted. Siblings of current students and children of graduates are given priority.
We begin accepting students for entrance to school up to a year in advance. Early acceptance decisions occur from November through December prior to the new academic year. The regular admission process begins in January, prior to the new academic year, for any available openings.
As part of the admissions process, parents will meet with the Director of Admissions. Students in grades 1 through grade 7 will be invited to visit a class for the day. Pre-k and kindergarten friends visit for an hour or two. The shadow visit experience also includes an opportunity for the family and the principal to meet, discuss the child and share the Saint Philomena School of the Sacred Heart experience and mission. A determination regarding acceptance is usually made within a few days and parents are notified by the Director of Admissions.
Please don't hesitate to contact the Director of Admissions, Mrs. Christie Giroux, at any time to learn more about the process or inquire about a private tour.
