Admissions Policy

 

Due to the increased interest of parents in the religious and academic programs of St. Ignatius Loyola Regional School, the following admission guidelines have been adopted and are in effect.  Enrollment status will only be valid upon receipt of registration forms and fees.

 

  1. Current students:  students in good standing, who are presently enrolled in our school in grades Kindergarten through Seventh; parishioners, non-parishioners, and non-Catholics, will be guaranteed re-enrollment status upon receipt of re-registration forms and fees by the due date.  All tuition from the previous school year must be paid in full.

  2. New students:  Acceptance into the general Preschool and Kindergarten program will be based on chronological age and the policy below (this does not guarantee into which session a student will be placed):

  3. Siblings of students who are presently enrolled in our school, grades Kindergarten through Eighth, and whose parents are active members and financially support St. Ignatius Loyola Parish or St. Francis de Sales Parish in Robesonia.

  4. New Kindergarten students, including those who attended our preschool, whose parents financially support the parish of St. Ignatius Loyola or St. Francis de Sales.

  5. Siblings of students who are presently enrolled in our school who are non-parishioners of St. Ignatius Loyola or St. Francis de Sales or non-Catholic.

  6. Children whose parents are non-parishioners of St. Ignatius Loyola or St. Francis de Sales Parish will be placed on a waiting list.

  7. Children whose parents are non-Catholic will be placed on a waiting list.

 

Acceptance in the four year old program does not guarantee placement into our kindergarten.

 

  1. Transfer students:  New students in grades One through Eight will be accepted on space availability, satisfactory educational and health records, and receipt of all forms and fees.

 

ALL NEW STUDENTS TO OUR SCHOOL WILL BE PLACED ON A WAITING LIST UNTIL CLASSES CAN BE EVALUATED. TENTATIVE PRESCHOOL AND KINDERGARTEN CLASS LISTS SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED BY APRIL 15TH.

 

Non-Catholic Students

In imitation of the Lord Jesus who welcomed the children, St. Ignatius Loyola School welcomes all children, Catholic and non-Catholic.  Our Catholic school has much to offer academically, spiritually, and morally.  We believe that non-Catholic children can, in turn, enrich our school by their presence, interest, participation and by sharing with the school community their own religious traditions.

 

Religious Classes and Liturgical Functions

It is necessary that parents realize and accept the school’s policy that religion classes and liturgical functions are part of the school program and are an integral part of the school curriculum.

 

Responsibilities of the Non-Catholic Student 

  1. General Attitude – The child should understand, respect and be willing to actively support the philosophy and goals of the school, a community within the Catholic Church.

  2. Attendance of Religion Classes - The child must be willing to attend religion classes since these classes are an essential part of the school's curriculum.  Participation in these classes can be an ecumenical experience helping him/her to understand and respect the beliefs of others and to come to a better understanding and appreciation of his/her personal beliefs.
