Enrollment Process

Admissions Status Tracking:  1

After your online application is submitted, you will be able to print the completed application and required supplemental forms, track online your progress through our admissions process, monitor when the school has received the required supplemental application forms and, if necessary, reprint the supplemental forms. To view your application status, please use your username and password to access your account, which can be accessed from our Admissions page.

Registration and Enrollment:

After receiving acceptance notification from the school, parents will be provided information necessary to complete the enrollment process through Renweb, our online school management system. This is a separate step from the initial school application.

We appreciate your interest and look forward to meeting you. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 865-483-9700.

Admission Policy

St. Mary’s School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. St. Mary’s School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship programs, and athletic or other school-administered programs.

St. Mary’s School exists primarily for Catholic students and to assist the Catholic Church in accomplishing its mission of evangelization. St. Mary’s School gives preference to Catholic students, but students of all faiths and creeds are welcome.

St. Mary’s School has developed a resource program over the years to include as many students of varying abilities as possible; however, all of our students are fully included in the classroom and need to be able to function with supports in place that do not require a one-to-one student/teacher ratio for implementation. St. Mary’s School does not offer a comprehensive developmental program and is not equipped to handle severe learning disabilities, behavioral/emotional disorders, or other conditions that require a modified curriculum or intensive behavioral support.

Please note: At our school, we believe in a partnership with parents/guardians to provide the best education for our students. Any information that assists us in this task ultimately benefits your child in his/her education. It is the parents’ responsibility to provide all relevant educational and special needs information on their child prior to acceptance to help the school ensure it will be able to meet all aspects of their child’s educational needs.  Failure to provide this information may inhibit the faculty’s ability to meet the needs of your child. As such, the school reserves the right to forego acceptance or the continuation of your child in our school if such information is not provided.

St Mary’s is indeed a very special place.  When I think about education here, I think of the word DELIBERATE.  . . .  St. Mary’s does not have to excel, but they are deliberate in their mission to work each and every day to go above and beyond.

As parents, my husband Lee and I chose St. Mary’s School because of the focus on what is most important—Christ.  We wanted for our children to build their foundation in a God centered environment, and we got that and much more.  I cannot brag enough about the quality of St. Mary’s academics, and that quality is built upon the commitment of the Sisters and the entire staff—teachers and support staff, and also the contributions of parents.
