We are delighted to again welcome you to Saint Mary’s School! We look forward to having your daughter and your family join us for the 2019-2020 school year. To help make for a smooth transition, Saint Mary’s will be sending you a series of emails this spring and summer with important information for the upcoming academic year. Please be sure to check your email regularly and read over the information carefully. Thank you in advance for adhering to all stated deadlines.

REMINDERS:

  • Saint Mary's School requires the final transcript of your daughter's 2018-19 academic year. Please give your daughter's current school this Final Transcript Request form so they may send that transcript to Saint Mary's at the end of the school year.
  • Please click here for details from our Binder Health Center regarding the completion of Magnus Health information. This information was originally emailed to you on April 29.

Course Selection | Academic Support | Advisor Forms

The following information is organized by grade level. Please complete the appropriate items as soon as possible, but by no later than Friday, June 14. We recommend that students take the assessments while the school year's coursework is still fresh in her mind. Once all items and your daughter's final transcript for the 2018-2019 school year have been received, you will receive notification in late summer regarding course placements.
