Admissions

St. Joseph School will admit students of any race, color, handicap, national or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to other students. All students are accepted on a probationary basis, both academically and behaviorally. The usual probation period is 9 weeks, a full marking period. Final decisions regarding admission and placement rest with the administration. An application for admissions must be completed before the admission process begins.

The admission process begins after completion of the application packet by the legal guardian. An interview may be held with the counselor; however, in cases of questionable admissions, administration, in consultation with the counselor, will determine whether St. Joseph can serve the needs of a particular student. A meeting with the bookkeeper is required.

All admissions paperwork must be completed by the last day of July.

Full disclosure of a student’s academic and behavioral records is required upon registration. Lack of disclosure can result in denial of admission to St. Joseph School or dismissal of the student.
