How to Apply for Middle School
Choosing a school is one of the most important decisions that parents make. Consequently, we ask that each prospective family learn as much as possible about St. Elizabeth’s in order to make the best educational decision for their children.
1. Submit an Online Inquiry. You will be contacted to set up a tour or open house date.
2. Attend an Individual Tour or an Open House. Afterwards, you will receive an email with a link to initiate the Online Application.
3. Complete the Online Application before the 2nd week of January.
4. Forward the three electronic Teacher Recommendation Forms to your child’s current Math and English teachers and Principal or current Counselor for completion before the 2nd week of January.
5. If you will be utilizing the Family Commitment Plan Sliding Scale Tuition, please provide your family’s total Adjusted Gross Income by uploading your most recent tax information to the application for admission. (Please call Admissions at 303-322-4209 x15 to determine eligibility.)
6. If your child has completed the ISEE or similar middle school entrance exam, you will need to provide those testing results as part of the application. If your child has not completed any testing, we provide testing on a Saturday morning in February.
If your child has received Psycho-Educational Testing, or is currently supported by a 504 Plan or an IEP, please provide the most recent evaluation and/or support summary as part of the application process.
7. Each applicant will complete a Classroom Visit, fully participating in the age appropriate classroom for the day.
Teacher recommendation forms, student transcripts, and private testing results are confidential records and should be submitted electronically directly from the applicant’s current school or testing entity.
After a grade level is filled, St. Elizabeth’s will maintain a waiting pool of admissible students. If a space becomes available, the entire pool for the grade level will be considered to choose the most appropriate child for the space. Keeping the mission of the school in mind, choices are based on the qualities of the candidate and the nature of the specific class, with the intention of providing the best educational experience for both the individual student and for the class as a whole.
