Admissions

St. Francis/Holy Ghost School admits students of any race, sex, color, national or ethnic origin and offers to them all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, national, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, athletic and school-administered programs.

The purpose of Catholic education is to give a well-rounded, spiritual, and academic education to Catholic children. This education is open to all Catholics regardless of race, sex, or ethnic background.

Therefore, it is and shall continue to be the policy of Catholic schools to serve all Catholic children equally. When openings are available, our school does and will continue to consider children of other faiths for admissions.

To be enrolled in kindergarten, a child must be five years old by September 1st. Students will be conditionally accepted into Kindergarten with full acceptance contingent on displayed readiness on the Kindergarten entrance test. Students entering JS1 through 8th grade will be conditionally accepted into the grade level displayed on the readiness test for the grade entering. Every student will be admitted on a probationary basis for one quarter to determine if the school can meet the needs of that student before making acceptance to the school final. The school may not have the resources to meet every child’s needs. IF during this probationary period there are any problems, a student may be asked to withdraw his/her attendance at St. Francis/Holy Ghost School. This school gives preference in admission first to baptized Catholic children of active parish families and then depending on availability of seats remaining, non-parishioners will be accepted. At the time of registration, all new students seeking admission to St. Francis/Holy Ghost are evaluated on the basis of current standardized test scores and report cards.

Requirements include:

  • Verification of active parish affiliation/stewardship
    • Use of weekly envelopes
  • Health Records

  • Baptismal Certificate (Non-parishioner only)
