Admission Policies & FAQ
Prospective students are considered for acceptance at SJND based on the following priorities:
Families with siblings currently enrolled who are registered
Catholic students transferring from another Catholic school
Families who are registered, active parishioners at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church or neighboring Catholic parishes
Students applying for transfer into the school will be tested/assessed (prior to admittance in the school) to insure appropriate placement in the instructional program and to insure that the school can meet the potential student’s learning needs. Students applying for transfer from outside the Catholic school system for the eighth grade will not be accepted. All new students will be admitted on probationary status for one year from the date of enrollment to ensure proper adjustment to our school environment and curriculum.
A child who is 4 years of age on or before September 1st of the current school year may apply for TK; a child who is 5 years of age on or before September 1st of the current school year may apply for Kindergarten; a child who is 6 years of age on or before September 1st of the current school year may apply for 1st grade.
Re-enrollment is held each year in the spring. Students who leave the school will not be given priority if they decide to return later. Final acceptance is determined by the pastor and school administration.
