Admissions - Priority for Admissions
 
St. Joseph School is a Catholic School. Our reason for existence is to provide a quality education within the context of the Catholic faith. We believe we can support parents in the religious formation of their children, but never replace them. We give the highest priority for admissions to families who hold values and goals consistent with the Catholic Church through commitment to their parish. 

During the registration period, students will be prioritized in the order below. Any students not placed by the end of the registration period will be placed in a non-ordered waiting pool. Applications received after the registration period will be placed in the pool. As openings arise throughout the year, all applicants in the pool will be re-evaluated and re-prioritized, according to the schedule below, at the time of each opening.

1.    Currently enrolled elementary students.

2.    Siblings of currently enrolled elementary students.

3.    Registered at St. Joseph Church or Mary, Queen of Peace Church, meet their criteria for parishioner status, sacrificial giving card on file, contributing member, participation in the faith life of the parish.

4.    Registered Catholics from a neighboring parish or transferring from an out-of-state parish, for at least 3 months, sacrificial giving card on file, contributing member, participation in the faith life of the parish.

5.    Other students within the community.

 

·      St. Joseph/MQP Preschool students are not guaranteed acceptance into the elementary school.
