Welcome to St. Leo Catholic School! We are thrilled you are interested in learning more about our application process. We encourage students of all faiths and backgrounds to apply. We have students apply at all grade levels.
First step is to fill out an application. There is a $75 non-refundable application fee for each student who applies. To be considered for financial assistance, you need to have an application on file and be accepted to the school.
We accept applications on a rolling basis. Acceptance Letters and Wait List Notifications are sent out in February so every family who has applied is aware of their status. To be officially enrolled and to hold a student's spot, each accepted student pays a $150 Acceptance Fee.
Priority placement is given to students according to the following classifications:
