GUIDELINES FOR ADMISSION
St. James School open enrollment for admission begins December for the following school year. Enrollment applications are accepted on a rolling basis as space allows. Please call for your personal appointment, tour and testing date.
Admission decisions are base on factors such as space available, report cards, testing scores, teacher recommendations, student and/or parent interviews, and participation in parish life.
Transitional Kindergarten (TK) Admission: TK is a program designed to meet the needs of students who are turning five years old after the September 1st deadline for Kindergarten. It serves as a bridge between preschool and kindergarten for children with fall birthdays.
Kindergarten Admission: Kindergarten applicants must be five years of age by September 1st of the academic year for which they are applying.
First Grade Admission: First grade applicants must be six years of age by September 1st of the academic year for which they are applying.
The school, mindful of its mission to be a witness to the love of Christ for all, admits students regardless of race, color, national origin, and/or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.
The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, disability, medical condition, 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 and some archdiocesan schools operate as single-sex schools.
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 the admission and continued enrollment of a student in the school are based upon the student's emotional, academic, and physical abilities and the resources available to the school in meeting the student's needs.
