Registration Information

SJS Registration Information

Priority in admission is given to children of registered, contributing members of St. John’s as well as Catholics from other parishes. We respectfully welcome non-Catholic students to join our school community if openings remain. Space permitting, new students can be accepted throughout the school year. All students, both new and continuing, must submit the registration form with any necessary documentation and include a non-refundable registration fee.  Please call the school to have your child added to the wait list.


The primary purpose of St. John’s School is to serve all Catholic parents who want a Catholic education for their children. Catholics who actively practice their faith have first priority.  Any non-practicing Catholic or non-Catholic families willing to comply with the school’s policies will be considered for acceptance as space allows.  Admission is probationary for a period of 90 days.  We reserve the right to dismiss any student whose behavior and/or academic work habits do not meet the standards of St. John’s School.

A birth certificate and baptismal certificate (if applicable), health record, and up-to-date immunization record is required of every student entering school.  Schools in the Archdiocese of Washington follow the Maryland State guidelines for age appropriate admissions. Pre-Kindergarten students must be four (4) years of age and Kindergarten students must be five (5) years of age by Sept. 1.  The Archdiocese of Washington requires parents who are (or become) divorced, separated, unmarried, or who have other special circumstances regarding the custody of their children, must provide the school with a current court order or decree of custody with the application.  A non-refundable registration fee will be required at this time.

In order to receive the Catholic tuition rate, a signed Eligibility for Catholic Rate Form from the pastor stating active parish involvement must be submitted by May 15, 2022.

Parent Cooperation is a Condition of Enrollment Parents/guardians and students understand and acknowledge the Roman Catholic religious nature of St. John’s School.  Parents/guardians and students agree not to publicly repudiate the teachings and traditions of the Roman Catholic Church, and will respect and support the unique identity the St. John’s derives from its Catholic faith.  As the primary educators of their children, parent/guardians shall cooperate fully with the school and the students shall participate in all required school programming, including instruction in the Catholic faith and attendance at Mass.  As the primary educators of the students, parents/guardians agree to act in ways that promote the best interests of the church and school and will comply with the policies of the Archdiocese of Washington and St. John’s School.

Transfers/Withdrawals Notice  Parents will notify the principal if there is a need to transfer or withdraw a student from school.  If a report card is issued, the parent will present the report card to the school the child enters.  Cumulative records will be forwarded to the receiving school when they are formally requested in writing by the school, and after parent permission is obtained to release the records.  Due to budgeting reasons, if you withdraw/transfer your student before the end of the school year, Tuition must be paid in full for the entire year before records can be released.  The only exception will be for Military moves.
