Enrollment Priority

When there are more applications from St. Joseph parishioners for grades Kindergarten-8th Grade than spaces available, the Principal will use the following guidelines in determining enrollment priority:

1. Parishioners with children presently in St. Joseph or children who have graduated from St. Joseph School.

2. Parishioners from St. Joseph and the number of years as a parishioner.

3. Current non-parish students.

4. Parishioners from neighboring Catholic parishes.

St. Joseph School will not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnic origin or religious beliefs.
