Choose a school that makes a difference in your child’s future, but also fits your needs.
As you consider your school choices, we hope you will see that every Catholic school in the diocese is dedicated to providing academic excellence and quality programs. You will also find that each school has a distinctive culture, dynamic student profile, and sense of tradition or legacy. So, finding a school that “fits” is the most important aspect in selecting a school for your child and family.
Visiting school websites is a great starting place for you to learn about school choices whether you’re looking for a school close to home or convenient to work. However, in order to best evaluate whether or not a school is the right “fit”, there is nothing better than a visit to campus. Consider scheduling a school tour or visiting during open house.
Each school has its own set of specific guidelines and enrollment deadlines relating to registering or applying for admissions. Typically, families apply to schools starting in the winter months preceding the fall term to which they are applying. Most schools require a non-refundable registration fee upon application. Families wishing to be considered for financial aid and scholarship support should also note the required steps and corresponding deadlines associated with a schools’ financial aid process. Families are generally notified of their financial aid awards in the spring and must qualify for the assistance annually.
• Discuss what characteristics of a school are important to your family
