Application Process

Our focus at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School is centered upon building relationships.  We make every effort to ensure that interested families have been given all the information they need to determine if our school is the best fit for their child.  Below is an outline of the Admissions Process:

Step One: Inquire and Visit
Complete the Inquiry Form to schedule a private campus tour.  Come visit classrooms, the technology lab, and library, and see students actively engaged in the dynamic approach to learning practiced at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School.  By filling out the Inquiry Form, you can register for a campus visit as well as receive helpful updates pertaining to admissions events and the St. Francis application process.

Step Two: Apply
Visit our front office in person to pick up an Application Packet.

All applications for admission for the next school year must be submitted to the Admissions Office along with the application fee and all required documents to be considered complete.

Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten Program applicants (ages 3-5): 
Applications for new students are accepted beginning in January of each year. Space is limited in our entry level grades and classes can reach capacity soon after our annual Open House event.  Applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible in the enrollment season.

Required Documents and Fees for Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten:
$50 Application Fee (non-refundable)
Copy of Birth Certificate
Copy of Baptismal Certificate (if applicable)
Copy of up-to-date immunizations

 

Kindergarten through 8th grade applicants: 
Applications for new students are accepted beginning in January of each year. Once an application has been reviewed by the Admissions Office, as well as school administrators, and space is available in the grade for which you are applying, you will be contacted to schedule a screening appointment by Chancy Bruce to conduct a grade level assessment.


Required Documents and Fees for Kindergarten through 8th Grade:
$100 Application/Assessment Fee (non-refundable) *includes application fee of $50
$50 Chancy Bruce assessment fee.

If we have more students interested in attending than we have spots for in a particular grade, we will create a waiting list. Students from the waiting list are accepted as vacancies occur.

Step Three: Determining Acceptance
Once applications are processed and assessments are completed, candidate files are reviewed by the Admissions Office and school administrators.  Families are typically notified of acceptance within two weeks of a student's grade level assessment. Official enrollment takes place in April for new students as well as returning students.
