How old does my child need to be to attend STCPS?
Children who are 2 years and 9 months (2.9) by September 1 and are accepted to Saint Columbkille Partnership School will begin school on the first day of the K0/K1 school year.
Students who turn 3 years old by March 1, which means they turn 2.9 by December 1, may also enroll but they cannot attend Saint Columbkille Partnership School until they turn 2.9. For example, a child who turns 2.9 on October 15 can start school on or after October 15.
There are two options for enrolling a child who is not 2.9 by September 1, but will turn 2.9 by December 1: guarantee a spot for your child or wait to enroll in hopes that a spot is available when the child turns 2.9.
- Guarantee your child a spot in the 2.9 class by applying and enrolling in the spring admissions cycle. In this case, tuition payments begin July 1 and are not prorated. The child will begin school on or after the day the child turns 2.9. In the above example, the child would start school on October 15 and monthly tuition payments would begin on July 1.
- Wait to enroll once the child turns 2.9. In this case, if a spot is available, the child will start on or after the day they turn 2.9. Tuition will begin the first day of the month that the student starts. In the above example, the student would start school on October 15 and begin monthly tuition payments on October 1.
Students who turn 3 after March 1 must wait until the next school year to enroll in K0 at Saint Columbkille.
