Requirements for Admission

 

Catholic schools are unique expressions of the Church’s effort to achieve the purposes of Catholic education among the young. Academic excellence and a disciplined formation will always be the desired goals of the Catholic school. Central to the school, however, is the understanding of the Catholic tradition and growth in faith. Parents wishing to enroll their children in a Catholic school must understand and agree to the purposes of Catholic schools.

Admission to a Catholic elementary school at any point of entry is contingent upon:
  1. The family’s desire for this special kind of school where Catholic teaching and moral formation are an integral part of the school;
  2. The child’s fulfillment of the age requirements listed below:
    a. for admission to kindergarten, the child should be five years of age before August 1;
    b. for admission to first grade, the child should be six years of age before August 1.
  3. The school’s ability to meet the student’s educational needs; Determination of this ability is based upon:
    a. the student’s performance in another educational setting;
    b. successful completion of the previous grade level;
    c. successful completion of the entrance evaluation process
  4. The parent’s willingness to accept the financial responsibilities of attending the school. (Taken from the Administrator’s Manual for Catholic Education, #4102.1)
