An application for enrollment to St. Ursula Villa is accomplished by submission of the Student Application and a $75.00 application fee. The application is placed on file by the Admissions Office within the following four levels of priority status. Applicants are selected from the applicant pool and are chosen through a multi-factored process that includes consideration of their priority status.
Priority 1: Sibling of Students Currently Enrolled at St. Ursula Villa
“Sibling of Student Currently Enrolled at St. Ursula Villa” receives the highest consideration for available openings within the applicant pool if filed by December 10th for the upcoming enrollment year. Applications received by the Admissions Office after December 10th will not receive priority ranking and are considered “New Applicants.” Applications within Priority 1 status will be considered in order of submission date. No preference will be given for siblings of those applying but not yet enrolled unless enrollment is finalized (see Priority 4)
Priority 2: Relocation/Re-enrollment of St. Ursula Villa Students
Current St. Ursula Villa families who relocate for employment reasons may, prior to moving, file applications for their children who are students in good standing at the Villa. The family must notify the Admissions Office by December 10th for the upcoming enrollment year in order to receive priority reenrollment. If St. Ursula Villa does not receive notification by December 10th, these applicants will be considered “New Applicants.” The same process applies in cases of student re-enrollment from Springer School to St. Ursula Villa.
Priority 3: Legacy/Alumni
Applications for children or siblings of St. Ursula Villa alumni receive “Legacy” status if filed by December 10th for the upcoming enrollment year. “Alumni” is defined by the parent of applicant graduating from St. Ursula Villa. Applications within the “Legacy” status grouping are filed by the Admissions Office.
Priority 4: New Applicant
All other applications are considered “New Applicants” and are placed on file with the Admissions Office. In the case of applicants within the same family, if enrollment is finalized with a signed contract and paid registration fee for one applicant during the regular enrollment cycle, the status of the sibling applicant moves up the waiting list to Priority 1. In any case, if an applicant is offered an opening into St. Ursula Villa’s programs and declines the opening, the family may request that the application be kept on file for the following academic year. The application date will be changed to the date the opening was declined.
Enrollment in St. Ursula Villa’s grades or programs for any applicant requires an available opening. Program openings are created by fewer-than-maximum number of enrolled students or non-returning currently enrolled Villa students. In the case of a full grade or class, all applicants, including siblings of current or enrolled St. Ursula Villa students, will be placed in a wait pool. Available openings may be determined during the enrollment process through declined or non-returned contracts. Applicants are selected from the wait pool and are chosen through a multi-factored process that includes consideration of their priority status.
St. Ursula Villa 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 and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarships and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
