Current School Year Registration 2018 - 2019
Families looking to register a child for the 2019-2020 school year are asked to please check back in January, 2019 when details will be made available.
Thank you for your interest in Saint Kilian Parish School. Selecting a Catholic school that will meet the goals and dreams of both parents and students is a very important step in the life of a young child as well as his or her family. A school must have the right fit, a sense of being at home. A student must feel comfortable as well as challenged, they must excel in their academic work, and there must be opportunities in athletics and extracurricular activities for them to commit their time and attention to develop their potential.
Saint Kilian Parish School has created a reputation that is second to none as a top preschool and elementary school, as well as a Catholic educational institution of faith. One has only to look at our students to see that Saint Kilian Parish School is the right place for you and your child.
We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our mission and culture. Complete details regarding admissions and enrollment at SKPS can be found below.

In an effort to make our enrollment as fair and accessible as possible, Saint Kilian Parish School registration takes place entirely online that generally takes place in late January / early February.
Once your application is completed, tuition deposits are non-refundable. Parent refund requests will not be considered. Saint Kilian Parish School only refunds the tuition deposit if the requested grade level is full and we cannot accommodate your child or if Saint Kilian Parish School declines acceptance to your child.
Registration opens at 7:00am SKPS time on the first morning of each phase specified below and closes at 11:59pm on the scheduled phase end date specified below. Forms cannot be submitted without payment verification. Please note that we do not offer paper registration forms or accept cash or checks for tuition deposits. Payment must be made online at the time of form submission via Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover. Forms cannot be submitted without verified payment.
Applicants who do not receive a confirmed spot will be placed on the waitlist in the order of which their original application request was received. There is no charge to waitlist a child; therefore, any paid tuition deposit(s) will be refunded within 30 days.
We are always happy to meet with prospective families and students and discuss all that our school has to offer.
SKPS offers individual and/or small group tours throughout the school year to accommodate each family's individual needs while witnessing learning in action on a typical school day at SKPS. Tours for new families inquiring for enrollment for the upcoming school year are offered each year starting in the September prior. Parents can click here to schedule a time online to tour the school and ask questions or contact Mrs. Lesley Stofko, Development and Events Director, at 724.625.1665 x.2121 to arrange for a tour. We thank you for your interest in SKPS and look forward to welcoming your family very soon!
In an effort to provide a non-disruptive learning environment for our student body, Saint Kilian Parish School does not currently offer a "shadow day" experience for prospective students.
Please select from the following for information:
- Why does registration take place online?
It is the aim of online registration to make the process as accessible to all wishing to enroll. This ensures our working parents, stay at home parents, and traveling parents all have an equal opportunity for enrollment, keeps parents from feeling the need to form lines in the parking lot before school hours in cold temperatures, and allows our school to run normally on registration days.
- What happens if i am in the middle of my form and need to take a break or leave for some reason?
It is possible to save your form progress and return to finish the form later without losing your work. Simply scroll down to the bottom of the form and click the button that allows you to save and return later. The form will then email you a link in which to return to your form later. When you re-visit your form, please be aware that you will need to re-enter the verification email, signature and credit card information before it will allow you to submit the form - it does not save this information when you use this feature for security purposes. If you try to submit your saved form and cannot, this is why - recheck the form that all fields are complete.
- I completed my form but it will not submit.
The form requires all fields are completed and that payment is made and verified in order for it to submit. If you do not fill out all fields, your form will not submit. If you do not enter all credit card information or sign the form, it will not submit. If you enter everything but your credit card is declined or invalid, it will not submit. Forms that do not submit are not sent to the school office, we will have no record of your registration request. Please double check your form information for accuracy and try again. If you continue to have a problem, please save your form and email the generated saved form link to the Help Desk and contact Debra Wioskowski, the School Office Manager, at 724.625.1665 x2101 for additional assistance.
- How many seats are available by grade?
We do not post capacity or availability. Availability will be provided to each registrant during each phase. When you go to enroll during your phase and click on the provided link, you will either be redirected to the registration form if there is still availability, redirected to the waitlist if enrollment is full but the waitlist has not yet reached 15 prospective students, or redirected to a notification that registration and the waitlist is full. As our registration takes place online and fills quickly, it is impossible for us to keep the current availability up to date on our website as this is happening. As grades and waitlist close, we will post this status on the top of this page.
We are also committed to keeping families together and having the necessary space available during the registration process to take siblings of current students prior to offering seats to other parishioners and the community.
- My child is a returning student, don't you already have this information on file?
Yes, we do keep all information on file in our student database. However, we have found that many parents do not keep their student and family records up to date via the portal or by notifying the school office when changes to their personal information occurs. By requiring all parents to provide this information for each child at registration, we ensure our data is accurate on an annual basis.
- I am concerned about getting my child in the morning/afternoon preschool class, how can I ensure my child gets my preference?
You will be noting your preference for morning or afternoon preschool on the registration form. We try very hard to honor preferences to the best of our ability in the order in which they are received. However, when assembling our preschool class rosters, we do have to take into account genders, birth dates and personalities to ensure well balanced classes that allow for optimal learning environment for all our preschoolers. Additionally, currently enrolled 3 year old preschoolers who request re-enrollment in our 4 year old program will be assigned to the same AM or PM class time in which they are currently enrolled (ie: students in 3 year old AM who re-enroll will be placed in 4 year old AM and students in 3 year old PM who re-enroll will be placed in 4 year old PM). Please contact the school office if you would like to request otherwise in the event a space becomes available in the alternate time.
- I do not have a credit card for payment or I need special assistance.
Please contact our school office in advance of your registration phase for instructions.
- What happens if my computer acts up or I have a problem the day of registration?
Unfortunately, we are unable to assist with computer problems you may have and will be taking enrollments in the order in which they are received. It is always good to have a backup plan (perhaps a parent or family member with another computer available if yours suddenly crashes or you are experiencing technical difficulties). Our online forms are thoroughly tested on a variety of platforms, computers, devices, and browsers in advance for accuracy and ease.
