Your important questions answered here.
When are school tours scheduled?
Tours are given during the school day. Please call the Admissions Office at 404-767-4312 to schedule a convenient time for your visit.
When may I apply to SJE for the 2020-2021 school year?
Now is the time to apply. Applications are available online or in our school office. Our preferred application deadline was February 13th, 2020. We will continue to accept applications on a rolling basis as space allows.
Do you need to be Catholic to attend SJE?
No. SJE welcomes students of all faiths. Approximately 25% of our student body is made up of non-Catholic students.
What is the age cutoff for admission?
Students MUST be 4 years old by September 1st to be considered for admission into our Pre-K. Students must be 5 years old by September 1st to be considered for admission into Kindergarten, and they must be 6 years old by September 1st to be considered for First Grade. We do not make exceptions to this guideline.
Is financial aid available?
Yes. Financial aid is available through the Archdiocese of Atlanta for Active Catholic families who qualify. GRACE Scholarships are also available to families who qualify. The application for admission and the application for financial aid are completely separate, but the processes run simultaneously. To be considered for financial aid, a family must first apply for admission to the school, then for financial aid through FACTS Grant & Aid. Completed 2019 taxes are required for this application. The application for financial aid will be available online in early January and is due February 28th, 2020.
Do you have before or after school care?
Yes! Before school care is available as early as 6:50 a.m. daily. We offer a vibrant after school program that begins at the end of the school day and ends at 6:00 p.m. Students have time to play, snack time, and homework time. Enriching activities like soccer, yoga, dance, and karate are also offered in the after-school program.
Are teachers at SJE certified?
Yes! Teachers hold their certification from the GA Department of Education and are highly qualified. Many of our teachers have advanced degrees.
When will we be notified of the admissions decision?
Admissions decisions for the 2020-2021 school year will be sent on April 3rd for applications submitted by the February 13th deadline. Others will be notified on a rolling basis as space allows.
