The school requires two applications for your child, or children, to be considered for admittance. They are The Arlington Diocese Application for Admission, and the Saint James Catholic Preschool application. You must submit both applications to Saint James.

Before you submit your child's application, please note the following:

  • Applications for the 2020-2021 school year can be submitted beginning January 26, 2020.
  • "Priority Consideration" is given to our returning families, parishioners of Saint James Catholic Church, and all other applicants; in that order.
  • The deadline for "Priority Consideration" is February 27, 2020.
  • Remaining spaces will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis for all applications received after February 17, 2020.
  • Please submit the registration form, along with the Diocese of Arlington Application for Enrollment, and the $200 application fee per student.
  • Acceptance letters will be sent electronically beginning February 20, 2020.
