A student is admitted to the school on the premise the student intends to learn the Catholic religion and be educated in a Catholic environment.  In certain cases, students may be admitted on a probationary basis subject to the student successfully completing one or more subsequent interim evaluations.  Students with academic or other needs (i.e. behavioral) which cannot be reasonably addressed by the school may be denied admission.

When the school cannot offer placement to  a student, we are eager to offer counsel about other schools that may be able to accommodate the student.  When there are more qualified candidates than openings available, the school establishes an unranked waiting list; if any openings occur, the admissions committee decides which candidate(s) to offer a position based on the overall profile of the class and the match between the needs and qualifications of the student with the needs of the school.  Please note, preference for admittance is reserved for students who are currently members of a Catholic feeder parish.
