School Notes:

ADMISSION POLICY
Edgewood Campus School respects the dignity of God's children. All children have a right to a quality education. In addition to the pursuit of academic excellence, an Edgewood education will begin to prepare children to live and work with others and to view all people with respect.   Students are accepted without regard to race, color, or national or ethnic origins. Children of all faiths are welcomed and expected to share in the religion education.

The following priorities will be considered in accepting students when there are more applications than places available:
1) Children already enrolled at Edgewood Campus School.
2) Children of families with students already enrolled.
3) Children of families with students in other Edgewood schools.
4) Children of families that have immediate members who have graduated from Edgewood schools.
5) Transfers from other Catholic schools that are merging or have closed.
6) All others will be considered according to the date of application. The school may apply discretionary exceptions to these priorities in favor of fostering values of social justice and personal spiritual development.

Wisconsin state guidelines for age will be followed in the admissions process.  An age-appropriate developmental and/or educational assessment by the principal and/or faculty may be given to students entering the school. This assessment assists in the placement of a child.

Admission requirements include but are not limited to: review of previous school records, standardized tests, an interview with the principal and classroom visitation.

As a private school, the teaching-learning environment may not be designed to accommodate the needs of all children. The admission process facilitates determining if Edgewood Campus School can provide a suitable educational program for the child seeking admission.

Class size is determined by the principal, however suggested guidelines exist for class size. When a class is at capacity, all applications continue to be welcomed and considered for future admission.

No standardized test is administered for admission.

ADMISSION PROCESS
1. Application with required birth records and academic records is submitted (report cards from past 3 years, standardized test results, state reading test results and IEP reports if applicable).
2. Payment of $50 application fee.
3. Meeting with admissions director and tour of the campus.
4. Parent Information Meeting (evening meeting where principal, faculty and admissions director make presentation about expectations, curriculum, individualization, special subjects, EHS classes, etc.) These meetings are held for K-4, K-5 and sixth grade families since these are the grades where we take the majority of new students. 5. Admission status letters sent (student accepted or not accepted).
6. Parent completes Registration Contract and submits the required registration fee and tuition deposit.
7. Student attends New Student Visitation Day and spends time with classmates that he/she will join in the fall.
8. During the summer, class lists are distributed so that friendships can be formed before school begins.
