Pre-K and Kindergarten Screenings

The early years are a crucial time for children’s development.  While attending our Pre-K or Kindergarten screening does not commit your family to Bishop Marshall School, it will give you a chance to see why families choose BJAMS and give you a good idea as to whether this is the right school for your little learner.  We educate children of all faiths!

We realize that this is not just a student, it’s your baby, and we promise to give him or her the love, care, and safety that you expect.  We also promise to help him or her become the best person he or she can be, while preparing for a future full of learning and growth.

There is an option for Pre-K students to enroll for half-days, Monday through Friday.

What happens at a screening?

During the visit and screening, students will spend time together with other prospective students as well as individually with teachers.  Parents will have an opportunity to meet our Head of School, participate in a Q&A, and enjoy a tour of the school.  Following the visit, a decision letter will be mailed to you — typically within two weeks — with information for your family to consider.

Tuition Assistance

For those who qualify, the program by Vermont Department of Education called Bright Futures can help offset tuition costs for Pre-K students (only).  For information, visit their website at: www.brightfutures.dcf.state.vt.us.  If you are a family of a Kindergarten student in need of financial assistance, you can apply for BJAMS tuition-assistance aid following your student’s visit, acceptance and enrollment.  Learn more about affording BJAMS.
