Admissions Criteria

Applicants for admissions to Saint John's School should be academically oriented and be able to meet demanding standards and high expectations, curricularly, instructionally and behaviorally.

Criteria for admission include where applicable, evidence of previous academic success and positive school behavior/citizenship along with evidence of ability to succeed in the academic and social environment at Saint John's School.

All candidates are given careful consideration in the admissions process and any adverse decisions are made regretfully but with the best interest of the child and the school in mind. Reasons for either admission or non-acceptance of applicants are based upon a composite of several factors including the results of the psychometric evaluation, observations made during the screening, testing and interviews, results of the entrance examination, assessment of developmental readiness, review of previous school experience and determination of appropriate educational programs for the child at Saint John's School.

The final decision on admission of an applicant is based on the collective experience and judgment of the school administrators, psychologist and counselor on the Admissions Committee.

All applicants are notified in writing of action taken on admissions. While the school policy is not to retest or reconsider applicants who are not admitted, certain circumstances may warrant retesting at the discretion of a school administrator. Saint John's recognizes that other schools may better meet the needs of those students who are not admitted to our school.

Each child/student is different, including siblings. Acceptance of one sibling does not guarantee acceptance of another.

Students who are denied admission may reapply in the future. Students who are accepted and decide not to enroll and current students who withdraw and would like to return, may reapply for admission at a later time.

Each applicant's admission folder and its content is the property of Saint John's School and may not be copied or released to parents and/or guardians.
