Online Application

The online application provides Saint Mary's School with contact and background information about prospective students and consists of the following components: 

  1. Household information
  2. Student questionnaire
  3. Parent questionnaire
  4. Application fee
  5. Transcripts
  6. SSAT scores
  7. Recommendations
  8. Interview

In order for an application to be deemed complete, all of the above eight components must be received by Saint Mary's School. 

Application Fee: All applicants must submit a $100 application fee. Any applicant who submits her application prior to October 30, will have her application fee waived. Any applicant who submits her application prior to November 30, will pay 50% of the application fee.

Transcripts: Please have the parent of the applicant fill out the transcript release form and provide it to their daughter's school. Additionally, please have your daughter's school send her most recent academic transcript directly to: 
     Admission Office
     Saint Mary's School
     900 Hillsborough Street
     Raleigh, NC 27603-1689

SSAT Scores: Applicants must take the SSAT (Secondary School Admissions Test). Please note this test is required, unless you are a student applying for the 11th or 12th grade and you have a PSAT or SAT score to submit in place of the SSAT. Each applicant is responsible for her own SSAT registration. Please visit to register online. The test is offered at a variety of locations across the US and internationally. Please request Saint Mary's School as a score recipient when registering to ensure our Admission Office receives the scores. Our Saint Mary’s School Code is 6790. The applicant must ensure their SSAT scores have been uploaded to their application.

Recommendations: Applicants should first complete the Applicant Waiver. Once this form completed, the applicant may request recommendations through the application portal using their corresponding teacher’s email address. Recommendations are required from the applicants’ guidance counselor, English teacher, and mathematics teacher. A personal recommendation is optional.

Interview at Saint Mary's School: A campus visit and interview are required for all applicants. Please call the Admission Office at 919-424-4100 to schedule your visit to campus. We look forward to meeting you!
