Open House and School Tour

Parents of prospective students are encouraged to attend an Open House at The Basilica School of Saint Mary. The Open House offers parents the opportunity to spend a morning at the school. Prospective parents will hear from administrators and staff, tour the school with current parents and interact with current Grade 8 students. The Basilica School of Saint Mary holds two Open Houses each school year, one in November and one in January.

Applications for the 2021-2022 school year will be available in November 2020.

Open Houses begin at 8:30am in our school gym. There will be a brief reception followed by guided tours of the school. The morning concludes at 11:00am. Parking on school grounds is available. Our Open Houses give guests the opportunity to enter and observe classes in session. Guests will also have the opportunity to meet and talk with our pastor, principal, parents of current students and student ambassadors from the National Junior Honor Society.

Although we prefer that parents of prospective students attend one of the scheduled Open Houses we understand that previous commitments might get in the way. If you are unable to attend an Open House, a short tour can be scheduled after the November Open House by contacting our Enrollment Coordinator, Mrs. Sarah Christie, at or 703-549-1646 x4910.
