A. St. Vincent de Paul School exists primarily to educate those Parish children whose families are committed to the Catholic faith and Catholic education.

B. St. Vincent de Paul School admits qualified students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies and scholarships. Students possessing physical or emotional disabilities will not be denied admission solely by reason of the disability.

C. Normally, no more than 30 students will be accepted for grades 1-8. A waiting list will be established as soon as classes are filled.

D. As openings occur for each grade level, admissions are considered on the following priority basis (any exceptions must be approved by the pastor):

NOTE: Families registered in more than one parish will be considered non-parishioners.

                  1. Children of St. Vincent de Paul parishioners who have children presently enrolled in the school.

                   2. Children of parishioners who are registered in and supportive of St. Vincent de Paul Parish.
                   Supportive families are those who regularly support the financial needs of the Parish (only the
                   regularity of the financial support is considered – not the amount). The length of time a
                   family has been registered in and supportive of the Parish and their level of involvement in
                   parish life are taken into consideration.

                   3. Children of non-parishioners who have children presently enrolled in the school.

                   4. Children of families who are registered in other Catholic parishes with first preference given to Parish
                       subsidized families.

                   5. Children of parishioners who are registered in the St. Vincent de Paul Parish.

                   6. Children of non-parishioner families.

E. Admission of students is dependent upon the results of testing and an interview by a faculty member and/or the principal. Admission is also contingent upon receipt and review of prior school records.

F. A child must be 6 years of age by August 31 for entrance into the first grade and/or meet our school’s first grade criteria. (Exceptions: See "special policies.")

G. An immunization form must be submitted by all new students before a child can attend school.
