Applications for all grades are still available for the 2016-2017 school year.
Applications for the 2017-2018 school year will be available on the website on Dec 1, 2016.
The open application period for each school year is December 1 - January 31 of the previous school year. All applications accepted during that time are evaluated together; there is no time/datestamp considered during this open enrollment period. All applications received after January 31 are evaluated first-come first-served.
We welcome students of all religious affiliations at St. Mary Magdalene School. Families that receive the Catholic-affiliated tuition rate must demonstrate an active Catholic parish participation of Time, Talent and Treasure, and the students must be baptized Catholic. We ask StMM parish members to strive to contribute $100 to the parish each month. Some of this goes to provide school subsidy and some goes to the everyday expenses of the parish. Your local Catholic parish might have a different financial expectation, but will still require identifiable Time, Talent and Treasure contributions.
If you are relocating to our area, you will need to submit a Parent Ministry form to your current Catholic parish for their signature, and will need to register at one of the local parishes after your move.
Families of other faiths will be charged the unaffiliated rate and are not required to complete the Parent Ministry form.
Every year we have students come to StMM from a variety of public schools. Our middle school teachers are very good at helping these students get acclimated to StMM. Religion classes are a combination of faith activities in the classroom and traditional 'book' learning and our experience is that new students quickly become accustomed to the work. It is much the same with Spanish class - the teachers help the new students get caught up, even if they have not had Spanish class in the past.
Elective classes vary from year-to-year, but typically we offer band, handbells, art 1 (drawing), chorus, sculpting, astronomy, world cultures, drama/musical theater, simple machines/robotics, PE games and photography/yearbook. Most classes are one semester; band and yearbook are year-long classes. Some classes are offered only to 8th grade students. Each 7th and 8th grade student will have two semesters of electives each year. Electives are typically three days per week.
Yes! We typically offer Chess, Newspaper, STEM Club, MLSM (Monarch Leadership and Service Ministry), and MathCounts as after-school clubs. The school also sponsors Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts.
Yes, as of January 2014, we are authorized by the Department of Homeland Security to issue Form I-20 to non-immigrant foreign nationals. Non-immigrant foreign nationals are international students that do not intend to make the US their permanent home. They intend to reside in the US temporarily while going to school. International students should apply to St. Mary Magdalene School using the International Application in the online application tool which is available at the top of this page.
International students at StMM are required to live locally with family members. We do not arrange host families and do not enroll students that are living with host families. Our philosophy is that these children are too young to be living with strangers for the academic year.
