School Notes

  • Admission Guidelines Admission is offered to anyone wishing a Catholic education. No student will be denied admission because of race or sex. All families entering the school system must register at the school office or during spring registration. A physical exam including vision, hearing, speech and dental is encouraged for all children entering a Kansas school for the first time. A record of immunization on an official form must be presented by all students entering a Kansas school for the first time. Kansas law requires that a child be six years of age on or before the first day of September in order to enter first grade. All non-Catholic students will be admitted upon the condition that parents of the applicant are willing to pay tuition, and that the principal has determined that there is enough classroom space available in the applicant's grade.
