Application Ranking

Saint Brigid of Kildare School admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin. Applications for admission will be ranked according to the following priorities:

  1. Siblings of families with children already enrolled in the school.
  2. Length of membership in the parish
  3. Regular contributions to the church
  4. Contributions to parish fund raising drives
  5. Involvement in the parish, school, and preschool programs
  6. Other priorities, such as transfers, addressed in Diocesan Regulation 5119-1


Once notified of acceptance, within seven days new families must pay online a $150 non-refundable deposit to the school, which will be used toward 2021-22 tuition. In addition, new families must set up an account with FACTS Management, our tuition payment service provider. Details on setting up an account and selecting from a variety of payment plans will be included in your letter of acceptance. The link to submit your deposit payment online will also be emailed to you.

Continuous Enrollment

Kindergarten through grade 7 children currently enrolled are guaranteed admission for the following school year. Although there is no guaranteed admission for children going from the preschool program into kindergarten, preschool students will be considered with the above mentioned rankings. All children must go through annual application to be considered for kindergarten. Preschool families will receive their kindergarten application forms from the preschool director.
