Admissions and Tuition

The Cathedral Preschool does not discriminate in enrollment on the basis of race, color, creed, or national or ethnic origin. Please note that, although The Cathedral Preschool and The Cathedral of St. Philip have had a longstanding, mutually beneficial relationship, The Cathedral Preschool is a parochial entity of the Cathedral of St. Philip. As such, admissions decisions are the sole responsibility of the Cathedral Preschool.

APPLICATION FORMS for the 2017-2018 school year are available here.

Tours for the 2017-2018 school year will be available during October and November. 

Please call the preschool office (404.237.8777) to schedule a tour or for information about the school.


TUITION POLICY

The annual tuition is due in two equal payments, April 21st and November 1st and is non-refundable.

2017-2018 Annual Tuition

  • Kindergarten (five days, 2 extended days) – age 5 by September 1 – $7918
  • Pre-K (five days, 2 extended days) – age 4 by September 1 – $7258
  • Three-Year-Olds (three days) – age 3 by September 1 – $4710
  • Two-Year-Olds (two days) – age 2 by September 1 – $3330

Executing this Registration and Tuition Contract holds a child’s place until the April 21st tuition payment is due. Tuition must be paid promptly by the scheduled dates. Failure to pay the April 21st tuition may result in forfeiture of a child’s space. Acceptance of the terms of this contract commits the child’s family to one full school year’s tuition.

Only under the following two circumstances may a family request, in writing, an exception to this non-refundable tuition policy:

(1) The child is moving outside the Atlanta metropolitan area. A refund request on this ground will be considered for a maximum of 50% of the April 21st tuition payment only. The Director must be notified of this request in writing prior to June 1st.
(2) The child is professionally diagnosed and documented with a special need that can not be met by The Cathedral Preschool as determined by the Director.
The Executive Committee of the Board of Directors retains the ultimate discretion regarding the granting or denial of any such requests and, if the request is granted, the percentage of tuition which may be refunded.


FAQs

How do I obtain an application form?
You may download a form from the website.  See above for APPLICATION FORMS.

Is there a charge for applying?
Yes. A $25 non-refundable fee must be sent with your application. If you receive a letter saying you have been offered a space, at that time you will send a $500 non-refundable deposit to secure a space.  For new students, $350 will be applied to the April tuition payment.

When can I apply?

How do I turn in my application on November 9?
Registration for new students begins on November 9, 2017. All registration is handled by mail only.

How does the school process the application information?
We wait for 10 days to assure that all letters mailed on the 10th have been received. Then we begin opening and placing each letter in the correct category to create our wait list. All letters postmarked November 10 are considered equal. If your letter is postmarked after the 10th, it will be opened after all letters postmarked on the 10th.

When and how will I hear about my status?
You will receive a letter notifying you of your status January 11. At that time you will have until February 1 to respond.

What if I am not offered a space?
Your child’s name will remain on our wait list for the remainder of the year unless you notify us to remove their name. If an opening occurs during that time, we go to the wait list in the order it was originally created.

Will my name remain on the list for the following year?
No. You must submit a new application each year.
