Greetings! We are delighted by your interest in St. Francis of Assisi School, a Catholic school rooted in the neighborhoods of Northeast Baltimore since 1955. During the regular admissions season, which begins with our Open House in the fall and wraps up when contracts are completed in the spring, your application process will usually include a school visit, application, and on-site placement testing. If you are applying for admission in the late spring or summer for the upcoming fall, admissions arrangements will be by appointment only.LINK: Tuition and Fees for 2011-12

Admissions timeline for Grades 1-8: There is a $25 application fee for prospective
students in grades K-8. When students join SFA for a shadow day, they may also have a
testing session to assess whether their academics are at grade level. To secure a place upon acceptance to SFA, a $100 non-refundable registration fee per child will be assessed and must be paid by April 1. By May 1, parents must pay a $200 per child book fee. In addition, parents will be asked to set up a payment plan through FACTS, for which a fee of about $45 is required. Monthly payments for the 2011-12 school year begin in May.
Admissions timeline for kindergarten: A shadow day is not required for kindergarten applicants. However, an early childhood assessment/screening will be held for all kindergarten registrants in May. All other timeline details and payment schedules listed above are the same for kindergarten students.
Assistance: Tuition assistance applications are first considered by the Archdiocese of Baltimore. Applications are due in March. Once the archdiocesan financial aid grants have been made, the School will evaluate additional need and award assistance to the extent that funds are available. Families are encouraged to seek assistance from other sources such as the Children's Scholarship Fund, their parish, and other available resources.
