Waitlist Application

Prospective families are encouraged to secure a position on our waitlist. During the registration period and when mid-year openings become available, we use our waitlist to fill such positions. There is a non-refundable wait list fee of $50 per family; one fee adds all siblings to the waitlist. Fee is waived for active members of St. Mark’s Church, current Day School students and their families, and family members of Day School Staff. Priority enrollment in St. Mark’s Day School is given to active members of St. Mark’s Church, to current Day School students and their families, and to family members of Day School staff.

Being on the waitlist DOES NOT guarantee your child a spot in our program. Upon contact for enrollment, please respond within 24 hours. Without this response, the opening will be offered to the next child on the waitlist. Please note St. Mark's waitlist clears annually to ensure that we are servicing active applications for enrollment. Each early Spring, you will be contacted via email regarding enrollment and/or to renew your application details.

It is your responsibility to contact us with any updated information (i.e. phone numbers, new address, etc.).
