St. Francis Xavier School is a Catholic elementary school intended to provide a quality Catholic Education in grades Kindergarten through Eight to children of families who are registered members of St. Francis Xavier Parish as well as other Catholic Parishes in the area.
1. Parishioners: i.e. children of families who are registered in, attend Liturgy, are involved in service ministry at the parish or school, and contribute to the support of St. Francis Xavier Parish.
2. Catholics from parishes without an elementary school: i.e. non-parishioners who are registered in, attend, and contribute to a parish without an elementary school. (i.e., Holy Martyrs, St. Martin of Tours, Our Lady of Grace, St. Stephens and Our Lady Help of Christians).
3. Non-Catholic families who are seeking a Catholic private school for their children.
(Families are discouraged from registering in the parish for the sole purpose of admission of their children to St. Francis Xavier School.)
Families whose children already attend St. Francis Xavier School will be required to re- register for the following academic year. This re-registration will take place during the second semester, and must be confirmed by the payment of the non-refundable registration fee.
Registration of new students takes place after the registration of the current school membership has been completed.
Children entering Grade 1 must be six years of age by August 1st and/or provide evidence of successfully completing Kindergarten in an accredited school.
Names of those interested in registering for St. Francis Xavier School will be taken for each grade level. Parents will be notified as soon as there is a vacancy. Once a student has been accepted, a formal registration will be taken, including a non-refundable registration fee.
Children entering Kindergarten must be five years of age by August 1st. All incoming Kindergarten children will participate in the “Development Indicators for the Assessment of Learning” (Dial 4) screening to determine readiness for the Kindergarten. Registration for Kindergarten students is held in the spring. Applications are considered according to the admission priorities.
