Apply for Admission
Registration for students entering Saint Edward-Epiphany Catholic School is ongoing, beginning on the Tuesday after Labor Day for the following year. A request for enrollment is taken over the phone. The family is invited to attend an informal meeting with the principal regarding school programs. At the informal meeting with the principal, parents will have the opportunity to formally apply to the school by filling out an Admission Form for their child(ren), and attaching the application fee to the form. This form actively places the child on the waiting list for the upcoming year. It does not guarantee placement in St. Edward-Epiphany Catholic School.
Students entering pre-school must be four years old by September 30th and students entering kindergarten must be five years old by September 30th. Formal developmental screening for both pre-schoolers and kindergartners takes place in the early spring of the year prior to entry. The screening is done at school and the results will be shared with parents.
Transferring from other schools
Students entering grades other than pre-school or kindergarten will be considered for admission to Saint Edward-Epiphany Catholic School after a thorough review of prior educational records, including report cards, standardized testing and educational/psychological testing. Additionally, all students are screened with an admissions test to assess readiness to enter our academic program. Due to limited class size, siblings are given priority for acceptance, followed by parishioners and non-parishioners.
New students entering Saint Edward-Epiphany Catholic School must have the proper immunization shots as prescribed by the Commonwealth of Virginia. School immunization forms are available in the school clinic or office. School records and health forms for transfer students must be obtained from the child's previous school. Parents must sign a release form at the former school in order for the records to be sent to Saint Edward-Epiphany Catholic School.
St. Edward-Epiphany Catholic School admits students of any race to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally made available to students. We do not discriminate on the basis of race in the administration of educational policies and any school administered programs.
