Registration for new students is held in the spring. New students include Transitional Kindergarten students, Kindergarten students and any other student who did not attend St. Vincent School the previous school year.
A Baptism Certificate is required when a child registers for the first time. For non-Catholic families, a birth certificate is required.
All new students will be screened before being accepted into St. Vincent School. Personal interviews will be conducted at the discretion of the principal.
All new students are accepted provisionally. If either the family or the school feels the child is not able to adjust to the curriculum, guidelines, or behavior norms, then the child will be asked to transfer. An evaluation of the child will be made at the time of the first progress report. Decisions will be made based on effort and motivation.
All families must re-register each year.
Parents who register their children must believe in our philosophy of education, accept the values, and cooperate with the school in its policies and discipline standards. The annual signing of the parent contract shows that parents agree to comply with school policy and discipline standards.
School Student Non-Discrimination Policy
The school, mindful of its mission to be a witness to the love of Christ for all, admits students regardless of race, color, or national and/or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.
The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, disability, sex, or national and/or ethnic origin in the administration of educational policies and practices, scholarship programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs, although certain athletic leagues and other programs may limit participation.
While the school does not discriminate against students with special needs, a full range of services may not always be available to them. Decisions concerning the admission and continued enrollment of a student in the school are based upon the student's emotional, academic and physical abilities and the resources available to the school in meeting the student's needs.
Through the mission of the Archdiocese, our schools strive to serve children with varied learning needs. All educators in Archdiocesan schools follow "Directions for the Inclusion Process in Catholic Schools: Support Team Education Plan Process (STEP) and Minor Adjustment Plan Process (MAP)". Parents or guardians who feel that their student may need a minor adjustment to enable him/her to participate in the general education curriculum of the school should consult the student's teacher and principal to determine how best to meet the student's needs. Parents or guardians may request the "Disability Discrimination Complaint Review Process" from the principal to address unresolved issues.
