As a ministry of the St. Monica Catholic Community, St. Monica Catholic Elementary School (SMCES) welcomes all applicants. However, due to limited class size, registration priority and enrollment consideration is given to registered, active, and participating parish families. All other families are considered based on available class space.

Registration of currently enrolled, returning students in Transitional Kindergarten through 8th grade will take place in January. New student applications for Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten will begin in the Fall before the year of intended enrollment. New student applications for grades 1-8 will start in the Fall of before the year of intended enrollment and depend on availability. Our admissions policy requires prospective parents to complete and submit the application forms, pay the application fee, submit a current report card and all required health records, submit a baptismal certificate (if applicable), participate in an assessment and meet with the SMCES administration and staff.

SMCES, mindful of its mission to be a witness to the love of Christ for all, admits students regardless of race, color, national origin, and/or ethnic origin, to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. SMCES does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, disability, medical condition, sex, or national and/or ethnic origin in the administration of educational policies and practices, scholarship programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs, although certain athletic leagues and other programs may limit participation and some archdiocesan schools operate as single-sex schools. While SMCES does not discriminate against students with special needs, a full range of services may not always be available to them. Decisions concerning the admission and continued enrollment of a student in SMCES are based upon the student's emotional, academic, and physical abilities and the resources available to the school in meeting the student's needs.
