The St. Mark’s Episcopal School Admission Committee seeks to enroll well-motivated children who are a strong match for our academic programs. The admission process is designed to assess readiness and predict success of applicants while providing families and students an opportunity to explore the mission and goals of our private school. Priority consideration is given to St. Mark’s Episcopal Church members, siblings of current St. Mark’s students, and children of St. Mark’s alumni. The need to balance classes by gender is of additional consideration.
The Admission Office recommends prospective families submit an application for admission the fall preceding the year of intended enrollment. For example, if you wish to apply for the 2017-2018 school year, an application should be submitted between September 2016 and the application deadline, January 13, 2017.
Admission decisions are not made based on application date, however it is important that families complete and submit an application by the January 13, 2017 deadline to be considered in the first round of admission offers. Supplemental admission materials must be received by February 10, 2017 at our office at: 3816 Bellaire Boulevard, Houston, TX 77025. The admission process for each grade is outlined below.
St. Mark’s Episcopal 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. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and tuition assistance programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
