Admissions Process

 

Guidelines

Students applying for transitional kindergarten must be four years of age by September 1.

Students applying for kindergarten must be five years of age by September 1.

Admissions decisions are based on such factors, but not limited to: parishioner status, siblings, space, school records, report cards, standardized test scores, teacher evaluations, entrance testing, and parent interviews.

Applicants will be considered in the following order:

  1. Siblings of students of St. Philip the Apostle School
  2. Qualified parishioners of St. Philip the Apostle Parish
  3. Qualified Catholics who are not parishioners of St. Philip the Apostle Parish
  4. Qualified Non-Catholics

 

Applications

Please use this checklist to ensure the following items are uploaded on your online application:

·         A recent photo of your child

·         Certificates of any Sacraments received, if applicable (Baptism, First Eucharist, Reconciliation)

·         Report cards and standardized test scores for the last two years, if applicable

When you submit your online application, you will receive an email response with evaluation forms attached. Print the appropriate form and give to the current teacher to complete. The teacher will mail/scan/fax the forms directly to St. Philip.

Please bring in or mail the $100 non-refundable application fee when you have submitted your application.

Your application will be complete when we have received the fee (for TK, K, & 1) and evaluation form.

TK, kindergarten, and first grade applicants will be contacted to make a weekday play date when the application is complete.

Applicants for grades 2 through 8 will be contacted to come in for an assessment should space be available in the class. The $100 application fee would be due at that time.

 

Parents of all new families will be interviewed on Saturday, February 9, 2019 from 8:00-10:00AM as part of the application process.

 

Notification

Parents will be notified of the admission decision in March.  If your child is accepted, you may enroll by paying a non-refundable registration fee of $500 by the deadline indicated on the acceptance letter. When the classes are filled, the remaining applications are kept on file until December.  If an opening occurs, you will be contacted to see if you are still interested in enrolling your child.  Parents must reapply to be considered for the following school year.

 

Non-Discrimination Policy

St. Philip the Apostle School, mindful of its mission to be a witness to the love of Christ for all, admits students regardless of race, color, or national and/or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.

St. Philip the Apostle does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, disability, sex, or national and/or ethnic origin in the administration of educational policies and practices, scholarship programs, and athletic and other school administered programs, although certain athletic leagues and other programs may limit participation.

While the school does not discriminate against students with special needs, a full range of services may not always be available to them. Decisions concerning admission and continued enrollment of a student in the shool are based on the student's emotional, academic, and physical abilities and the resources available to the school in meeting the student's needs.
