Admission Information

Application Priority Deadline is December 15

Admission procedures are designed to select students who will benefit most from the programs offered at Maryknoll School. Students are accepted at all levels with major entry points being Kindergarten, Grade 6, and Grade 9.

Special consideration is given to qualified alumni children, siblings of current Maryknoll students, Catholic families, and children with special talents that will enrich the school’s community.

All applicants are required to attend an on-site assessment/interview. We will send you a letter confirming your scheduled date by mail.

  • Students applying to Kindergarten will be observed in small group and individual activities. Areas to be assessed include: fine motor skills, language development, group behavior and academic readiness.
  • Students applying to grades 1–3 will be assessed in the areas of math, reading and writing.
  • Students applying to grades 4–12 are required to attend an interview session on our campus.
