Your important questions answered here.
When are school tours scheduled?
At present, due to COVID-19 we are not giving in person tours. Please call the Admissions Office at 404-767-4312 to discuss when you can attend an event with a virtual tour.
When may I apply to SJE for the 2021-2022 school year?
Applications open October 6th for the 2021-2022 school year and will be available online or in our school office. Our preferred application deadline was February 11th, 2021. 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 2020 taxes are required for this application. The application for financial aid will be available online in early January and is due February 28th, 2021.
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?
Admission decisions for the 2021-2022 school year will be sent on April 2nd for applications submitted by the February 11th deadline. Others will be notified on a rolling basis as space allows.
