Application Enrollment Process

INQUIRE

Our friendly admissions staff and parent ambassadors are happy to answer questions on any topic.  They love to talk about our school!  Just send us your contact info and we’ll get right back to you.  Go ahead and include your questions, and we’ll make sure we are ready to answer them.

TOUR

​Come see us in action.  Our teachers love to have visitors.  We will work with your schedule to find a good time for a visit and make sure that anyone you need to talk to is available for a chat while you are here.

3

APPLY FOR ADMISSION

​Initial application can be completed with a quick initial info form and a tuition deposit of $xxx, which goes against your tuition in the Fall.  Completing this form and submitting your deposit will hold your spot.

4

APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID

​If your family requires financial aid, we encourage you to submit your application early to be considered for as many potential aid sources as possible.  All our financial aid is need-based.  We use both an external technical review (provided by FACTS grant and aid) and a committee approach to calculate aid offers.

COMPLETE YOUR ENROLLMENT

[Highly variable by school it seems]  The time has come to complete the paperwork.  There are only as many forms as required, we promise.  Click here to go to the complete set of downloadable forms and a checklist for new student enrollees.

Financial Aid
There are two paths forward to access financial assistance....

DO IT

YOURSELF

If you want to DIY this process, click this button.  It will take you to some information about our Financial Aid process, tell you what documents to pull together, and provide a link to FACTS Grant and Aid to start the process. We estimate it will take just 20 minutes to complete your application and upload your paperwork, if you have everything gathered in one place.

GET HELP

​If you would like someone to work through it with you, click this button. A parish volunteer or office staff member will contact you and schedule a time to do the application together.

Current Student Online Registration

Attention parents:

Powerschool is an online Student Information System used by schools of the Archdiocese of Chicago. Currently, all grades are on Powerschool for student information and attendance, and the gradebook component is used by grades K-8. Parents and students may access their Power School accounts by following the directions below.


Parents, please note. If you do not create the Powerschool account first for yourself, you will not be able to log on to check your child's grades.

Fill in your child's ID and password to set up your account. You will use that information to access the account going forward and for all future logins.

 

We are asking that you register your children using the Parent Portal in the PowerSchool System. Once you log in you'll see the option RE REGISTRATION on the side menu panel. ALL STUDENTS returning next year must have this completed. Sibling registration is designed for NEW students coming, as siblings of currently enrolled students. This process takes less than five minutes. Please take the time and register your child.

This is a necessary step for any families that had applied for SGO assistance, to show as proof of acceptance into Our Lady of the Snows School.

​To log into PowerSchool go to:
