Admissions Protocol for Acceptance

 

 

First preference is given to families who already have children attending the school. Priority is then given to those who have been registered, contributing members of St. Francis of Assisi Parish (in-Parish), then to Catholic non-parish families, and then to non-Catholic families. Please see the Tuition & Fees description to see the In-Parish requirements.

 

Children entering Kindergarten must be five (5) by August 31st.  Those entering First Grade must be six (6) by August 31st.  A birth certificate and a baptismal certificate (the latter applies only to Catholics) must be presented at the time of enrollment.  

 

All students seeking admission will be screened prior to placement. Admission of students is dependent upon the results of the testing and an interview by the Principal. Admission may also be contingent upon the receipt and review of prior school records.  Please contact the school office to make a screening appointment.
