Admissions

We are looking forward to having you as part of the Saint Joseph's community!

The Saint Joseph's Catholic Academy admissions process consists of four easy steps.  Below describes these steps in detail.  If you have any questions, please, contact Ms. Maryann Lingenfelter, Director of Admissions and College/Career Counseling, at mlingenfelter@sjcacademy.org or (814) 808-6118.

Admissions Process

  1. Create a SchoolAdmin parent account (click orange button below).
  2. Complete the online application and submit the application fee through the SchoolAdmin system.
    • Application Fee on or before March 19th: $25.00
    • Application Fee after March 19th: $125.00
  3. Contact the school office at 814-808-6118 ext. 304 to schedule a "Meet and Greet" for your student.  The "Meet and Greet" lasts about 1 hour.
  4. Provide your student's transcripts and grade reports from his/her current school.  Your student may bring these with him/her to the "Meet and Greet."

What Happens Next?

Once the steps above are completed, your student's application materials will be reviewed by our Admissions team.

Acceptance Notification
Accepted students will receive a formal letter of acceptance by mail.

Accepted Students Event
All accepted students will be invited to an accepted students event. During this event students will meet other accepted students and current students, as well as learn more about course offerings and campus life at Saint Joseph's. Participants will complete a course preference sheet, which will be referenced by the Saint Joseph's administration when preparing the student's course schedule. This event generally occurs in the Spring, and details about this event will be sent to parents/guardians by email.

Formal Enrollment, Deposit Payment, and Tuition Plan Selection
Parents/guardians of accepted students will be directed to log back into the SchoolAdmin system to complete additional online tuition contract and enrollment forms. Parents/guardians will also be asked to create a STS tuition management account, make a non-refundable $500 tuition deposit, and set up a tuition payment plan. The tuition deposit is due July 1st and will be applied to the student's overall tuition balance. The tuition payment plan begins August 1st.

Financial Assistance Application (Optional)
Parents/guardians interested in applying for financial assistance may do so through the online STS financial assistance portal.  If you choose to submit a STS application for financial assistance, you should NOT sign your student's tuition contract in SchoolAdmin until you are made aware of your student's award. More information about financial assistance and how to apply can be found by clicking on the blue Financial Assistance button or by contacting the Saint Joseph's Business Manager, Mrs. Katie Sosnoskie at ksosnoskie@sjcacademy.org or 814-808-6118.
