Admissions Coordinator for 
Elementary School: 

Jessica Willison, (503) 718-6501

Thank you for your interest in Valley Catholic Elementary School. The Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon and our faculty and staff, in partnership with our parents, provide excellent, affordable Catholic values-based education to students in the Portland-metropolitan area. We are pleased to be serving our Elementary School students in a new, LEED Gold state-of-the-art building built just in time for the 2011-2012 school year.

Our new building is just one outward sign of the commitment the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon have to education. If you determine our school to be a good fit for your family, we hope to have your child benefit from the commitment our community has to students’ personal, spiritual, and academic growth!

We look forward to welcoming parents of applicants for the 2015-2016 school year at our Open House on Sunday, Jan. 25 from 1 to 3 p.m. The event will start with opening comments from the principal and a reflection from a High School student who attended the Elementary School. There will be a Q&A with kindergarten teachers and plenty of time to see the school, learn more about our school program, and meet all of our faculty and staff members. 

Application materials for the 2015-2016 school year will be available for the first time at our Jan. 25 Open House and will be available beginning the next day online and in the school office. To be considered for our first-round of admissions, applications should be turned in at the school office by Friday, Feb. 6 at 4 p.m. We will accept applications beyond this date, but they will be considered after wait lists from the first round, should there be any, are exhausted. 

We do have limited availability in our school for this current year (2014-2015), and we do accept applications that will be considered should a spot become open and our current wait lists are exhausted. Please call Jessica Willison at 503-718-6501 to learn more or to sign up for one of our Friday morning tours. 




Application packets may also be obtained in the school office between 7:25 a.m. and 4 p.m. For information, directions, or to express interest in attending during the current school year, contact Admissions Coordinator Jessica Willison in the school office at (503) 718-6501.


The 2014-2015 Elementary School tuition is $6,850 for the first child. A multiple child discount is available, deducting $250 for each additional sibling in grades K-12. There is also a $200 registration fee.  Financial aid is available. Please note, in grades K-8, we do not board or host students traveling here to study.

Valley Catholic Elementary School admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarships, financial aid, loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
