LEARNING FOR LIFE SINCE 1908

APPLICATION PROCESS: Respect, Inclusion, and Equality

    Parents of students entering for the first time shall provide:
  • Birth Certificate
  • Baptismal Certificate
  • Medical immunization records required for school entrance
  • Recent test scores and report cards
  • Non-refundable registration fee

Parents complete an application form and state any medical, physical, emotional and academic needs that may require special attention. Students being considered for admission need to submit copies of the last report card and any individual and/or state test results if available. An interview with the principal is also a requirement.

All acceptances are conditional and rooted in the student's ability to adhere to the rules and regulations as outlined in the student handbook and the school's philosophy. If a disagreement develops regarding a student's or parent's ability to support the school's philosophy and policies, the administration reserves the right to ask to have your child/children transferred to another school. Further condition is dependent upon the school's ability to provide the appropriate academic program that meets the needs of each child. The principal shall make final decisions in all matters requiring discernment. Priority for admission is given to parishioners.

"The non-public schools of the Diocese of Fall River admit students of any race, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the schools...and do not discriminate on the basis of race, national and ethnic origin in administration of their educational policies, scholarship and loan programs, as well as athletic and other school administered programs."

St. Joseph School encourages a school climate of respect, inclusion, and equality.
