Welcome! Thank you for your interest in St. Joseph Catholic School
in the upcoming 2017-18 school year.
As openings become available, the following priorities will be used to accept students to St. Joseph Catholic School:
1. Members of St. Joseph Catholic School with siblings already in attendance
2. Members of St. Joseph Parish
3. Members of other parishes newly registering in school
4. Non-Catholic students
A student entering Transitional Kindergarten must be (5) years by March 31st
A student entering Kindergarten must be five (5) years of age on or before September 1st. Students will be assessed to determine readiness before acceptance into the Kindergarten program.
A student must be (6) years of age on or before September 1st of the current school year, in order to be considered for enrollment.
At the time of registration, at any grade level, parents/guardians are to bring:
Birth Certificate (original)
Baptismal Certificate (Catholic applicants only)
For those entering grades 1-8 :
A copy of the previous grade level report card
Most recent Standardized Achievement Test Results
A letter of recommendation from their previous teacher
Placement tests are administered to all incoming students. All new students will be given a trial period of not less than one semester in which to prove himself/herself both socially and academically. If during this trial period there are any problems, a student may be asked to withdraw his/her attendance at St. Joseph Catholic School. The recommendation and decision of the school is final.
All previous financial and volunteer service hour responsibilities must be completed before a family returning to St. Joseph Catholic School will be accepted for the new academic year.
No child will be deprived of a Catholic education at St. Joseph Catholic School for financial reasons alone. There
must, however, be consultation and a demonstration of good faith on the part of the parents
St. Joseph Catholic School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color and national and/or ethnic origin in administration of educational polices, admission policies, scholarship and other loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
