Admissions


As part of the admission process, the principal will meet with each new family. From the interview and the information available to them, the pastor, PEC member and principal will decide if the school can meet the needs of the student and if the family and student can meet the school’s requirements.

Priorities for Admittance (CISVA Policy)

For purpose of this policy, “practicing Catholics” means individuals who are registered in a parish and attend Sunday Mass regularly; “active in parish” refers to individuals who support the parish by regularly using envelopes and participating in the work activities required of them by the pastor. 

Applications for enrollment will be given preference in the following order:

  1. Children presently enrolled at St. Bernadette School provided they and their families meet the school’s expectations.
  2. Siblings of children already attending St. Bernadette School whose parents are practicing Catholics and active in the parish;
  3. Children whose parents are practicing Catholics and active in the parish;
  4. Siblings of children already attending St. Bernadette School whose parents are practicing Catholics active in other parishes;
  5. Children whose parents are practicing Catholics coming into the parish, who have been attending Catholic school elsewhere;
  6. Children whose parents are practicing Catholics active in other parishes;
  7. Children whose parents are either not practicing Catholics or are not active in their parish;
  8. Non-Catholics. Once accepted into the school, non-Catholics need meet only the criteria expected of other students to be readmitted in subsequent years. Siblings of non-Catholics cannot be given priority over Catholics.

Application Forms can be downloaded from here or picked up from the school or parish office.
