According to Archdiocesan Policy #2000: “All Catholic preschools,
elementary schools and Archdiocesan high schools are open to students who
sincerely seek a Catholic education and meet the requirements listed
below. Because every Catholic child
has a right to religious instruction and formation in the Catholic faith,
preference is given to Catholic students.
No person shall be admitted
as a student in any Catholic school unless that person and his/her parent(s)
subscribe to the school’s philosophy and agree to abide by the educational
policies and regulations of the school and the Archdiocese. Whether Catholic or
non-Catholic, the student must agree to attend religious classes and the
religious activities conducted in the school.
No student shall be
admitted to any Catholic school unless s/he is deemed to have reasonable hope
of successfully completing that school’s program. In doubtful cases, students may be
admitted on a probationary basis with dates and criteria of evaluation clearly
established in writing.
Students shall not be
denied admission to an Archdiocesan school because of a disability unless this
disability seriously impairs the student’s ability to complete successfully the
school’s academic accommodation for the disabled child.”
