Admissions Process - Grades 1-8

If you believe St. Stan’s is the place for your child and family, please take the following steps to become a St. Stan's Wildcat!

  1. Family Interview and Tour - Call our school at 773-278-4560 to schedule a tour of our building and meet with Ms. Hill, our principal, to learn about St. Stan's approach to teaching and learning.
  2. Completed application packet - Submit your application with a $50 application fee to our school office. The following documentation is also needed at that time:
    • Your child’s original birth certificate (will be photocopied and returned)
    • Copy of baptismal certificate (if applicable)
    • Your child/ren’s report cards for the past two years and any standardized test scores
