Most Recent Academic Records

For Kindergarten admission, submit a copy of the first semester report card to Saint Mark by February 10 (if available). For Grades 1 – 8 admission, submit a copy of last year’s final report card and the first semester report card of this year to Saint Mark by February 10.


The first round of decisions will be mailed out after March 1. Upon acceptance, a place in the classroom will be guaranteed only if the NONREFUNDABLE enrollment fee and contract are remitted within two weeks of acceptance. This fee is applied to the tuition. It is often necessary to place students on a wait list as enrollment for each class is limited.


Tuition for the upcoming school year is usually determined in the early spring. Check the school office or here for the latest tuition schedule.
