● Each week, students take home a book to build their personal library

How to Register

To register you will be required to pay a non-refundable registration fee of $25 per family. This is different than the tuition fee, up to $250 for the 7 week program, which is income based.  All families must pay the non-refundable registration fee when they complete their registration form.


After the registration fee is received and the on-line form is completed, you will be contacted by the St. Mark staff regarding the status of your application. Although you may be approved for registration, a mandatory parent information session is still required before your child can begin attending program.
