St. Vincent Martyr School seeks students from varied economic, racial, and religious backgrounds who are intellectually curious, serious about learning, self-motivated, and disciplined. Admissions decisions are made without regard to race, religion, sex or national origin. We offer rolling admissions throughout the school year to new students who meet admissions criteria. Re-enrollment is offered to existing students whose academic and tuition records are in good standing.
