It's Easy to Apply Online!

The registration season for our 2018-2019 school year is already underway at St. Mary on the Hill Catholic School. This season seems to be humming along with our new online application. The ease and efficiency of the online process is a win-win for parents, school administration, and the trees. And, our new families can be half a world away and register their children as easily as those already living in Augusta, Georgia.

New families register their children by visiting http://stmaryssaints.org/admissions/admissions. Once you are on the admissions page, just click on “online new student application and fee” to begin the process on RenWeb, the secure school management system that we use at St. Mary’s School.

As you complete the application (one per child), you will have an opportunity to upload any needed forms such as your child’s birth certificate, health and immunization forms, etc. After you submit the application(s) and $75 per child application fee, you will receive a confirmation e-mail.

The following are a few items that are worthy of mentioning:

-RenWeb is working on making their mobile platform fully functional.  Until then, we recommend that you use a laptop or desktop computer.

-Kindergarten students must be five years old on or before September 1, 2018.

-Space is limited. As of January 31, 2018, we will process new student applications on a first-come, first-served basis. So, the sooner you apply the better.

-GRACE Scholars scholarships may be available for families who meet eligibility requirements and demonstrate financial need. Please visit http://stmaryssaints.org/admissions/grace-scholars or www.gracescholars.org for more information. The deadline is March 1, 2018, for the 2018-2019 school year.

What happens after you receive the confirmation e-mail?

We will contact you to schedule placement testing. Kindergarten testing will take place in March 2018. First through eighth-grade testing will take place in May 2018 so students can complete as much of their current year’s curriculum as possible. Testing can also be arranged at other times for out-of-town families and in the event of schedule conflicts. You do not need to pay any additional monies for testing since the $75 application fee helps with that expense.

After testing, we will contact you to let you know if your child has been accepted. Once accepted, additional information may be needed (e.g. forms that were not previously submitted). The $350 per child enrollment fee will also be due. This annual fee helps offset educational expenses such as classroom materials, consumables (e.g. workbooks), online educational subscriptions, and technology.
