Existing Family Registration
New student registrations from families who already have a child or children attending St. Joan of Arc Parish School will be accepted for Grades 3K-8 via the registration forms sent home in early January. These registrations will be accepted in the order in which they are received until the class limit has been met. Up to five (5) additional registrations per class will be placed on a waiting list.
New Family Registration
New student registrations will begin on the Sunday of Catholic Schools Week (usually the last week in January). Date and time will be noted on each registration form. The priority system will be in effect for two weeks commencing with the Sunday of Catholic Schools Week. After this period, registration will be on a first come first serve basis in accordance with the general admissions statement:
In the event that there are more students applying to a grade level than what we can accommodate, new students will be accepted according to the following priorities:
1. Children who presently have older siblings in the school.
2. Children whose siblings have already graduated from the parish school.
3. The children of past graduates whose families are parishioners of St. Joan of Arc and St. Catherine’s Parish.
4. The children of St. Joan of Arc and St. Catherine parishioners.
5. New students from a non-parishioner but Catholic family who want to attend St. Joan of Arc Parish School.
6. Non-Catholic family.
