Admission Policy Our physical plant
limits us to one class for each grade, and consistent with the
guidelines of the Archdiocese of Washington, we endeavor to limit
class size to no more than 30 students. Because of these physical
limitations, generally more students apply for admission than we are
able to accept, especially to the lower grades. Consequently, we
have adopted the following order for accepting qualified applicants:
1. Siblings of current students,
2. Children of registered parishioners of St. Martin 's Parish,
(The family's length of time and degree of involvement in parish
life are key considerations.)
3. Catholic children from neighboring parishes that lack a
4. Non-Catholic students whose parents desire a Catholic
education for their child.
Consistent with the order for accepting applicants cited above,
no qualified applicant will be denied admission on the basis of
race, color, sex, or national origin.

After all grades are filled for the upcoming academic year,
subsequent openings will be filled from our pool of applicants.
Parents will be contacted as space becomes available. All admissions
are granted at the discretion of the Principal.
Students entering from public or private schools will be
evaluated to ensure that St. Martin's School staff is thoroughly
aware of the students' abilities. A brief test will be administered,
and the current grade report will be consulted. Students entering
from schools within the Archdiocese of Washington need only submit
their most recent report cards and standardized test results. The
students' previous schools will be consulted for placement.
The Maryland Health Department requires that children have all
immunizations in order to attend school. Children who do not show
proof of all required immunizations will be sent home from school
until health records are up to date.
