Admission Overview

St. Catherine School does not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, age, sex, or disability in the admission of students, as well as its administration of educational policies, scholarship, loan programs, and athletic or any other school administered programs.

Once the applicant has passed the entrance exam or readiness test acceptance to St. Catherine’s will be considered based on the following priorities:

  • Siblings of Catholic families already enrolled in St. Catherine School
  • Catholic children whose families have been active, registered members of St. Catherine Parish, attending Sunday liturgy regularly, active in parish life, and financially supporting the parish in a recognizable (checks / envelopes) and meaningful manner.
  • Catholic children who do not belong to St. Catherine Parish but whose families are active, registered members of other Catholic parishes.
  • Non-Catholics who are willing to participate in the school’s religious education program.

Final decision of acceptance is made upon evaluation of results of the entrance test, previous standardized testing, the child’s report cards, the student assessment form, parents’ involvement in the parish, and the family interview.

In order for your Application to be complete, please submit the application fee ($50.00) and all documents (Birth Certificate, Baptismal Certificate, etc.) to the School Office.
