Thank you for your interest in Saint Matthew School. Students of all faiths and backgrounds are encouraged to apply. The Admissions process usually begins with a campus visit. Coffee with the Principal sessions are scheduled for Wednesday September 12 and Wednesday December 5, and our 2018 Open House will be held on Sunday October 28. Private tours are also available. Select 'Visit SMS' from the menu to register for Coffee with the Principal or Open House.
Students who are interested in attending Saint Matthew School are encouraged to submit an application. There are separate applications for pre-kindergarten, kindergarten and grades 1-8.
Applications for immediate and future enrollment are accepted at any time during the school year. Applications for pre-kindergarten and kindergarten are strongly encouraged by December 10, 2018. Students who apply by December 10 will be eligible for their screening appointment in January and be given priority for acceptance.
Admission decisions are made by the Principal based on information submitted with an application. If no opening is available, students are placed in a waiting pool. Siblings and children of faculty have the highest priority for admission. Participating parishioners of Saint Matthew Church, Holy Family, St. Philip and Church of the Nativity have the next highest priority for admission. Participating members of other Catholic parishes are next, followed by non-participating Catholics and non-Catholics.
For further information on Admissions, contact Lori Bellante, Advancement Director at 615.550.5106 or via email.
