ADMISSION POLICY AND PROCEDURES

As a parish school, Incarnation must give priority to children of Incarnation Parishioners, using the priorities detailed below and presupposing available space.  Students currently enrolled in the school will be admitted before any new admissions, provided they are officially registered during the re-enrollment period.  While it is our goal to accommodate all interested families, please be aware that registration does not guarantee entry into Incarnation School’s program.  New students registered and not admitted due to lack of space are placed on a wait list.  Please review the Admission Policy Guidelines on the bottom of this page for more detailed information.

The Incarnation School admission process begins with submission of the following: 

  • Application for Admission form
  • Recommendation form (for students applying for grades 1-8)
  • Original County birth certificate
  • Social Security Card or valid Passport (for identification purposes)
  • Copies of Baptismal, Reconciliation, and First Communion certificates (when applicable)
  • Payment of the registration fee.   

All students applying for Preschool 4’s, Early Fives, Kindergarten or Grade 1 will be tested for placement purposes before admission approval.  Students applying for Grades 2-8 will be tested for placement purposes at the earliest opportunity.  All students are expected to meet Incarnation School’s standards for academics for placement in the requested grade level.  Acceptance will also be dependent on the student’s behavioral record and work ethic. 

All applications are reviewed by the Principal for final approval.  All accepted students are admitted in accordance with this Admission Policy.  Official acceptance letters and related documents are mailed upon admission approval. 

ENROLLMENT PRIORITIES FOR NEW STUDENTS
ADMISSION POLICY GUIDELINES

We accept all students regardless of race, religion, sex, ancestry or national origin (Archdiocesan Admission Policies, 502.02).  Notwithstanding our open admission policy, it must be noted that the purpose of this parish school is to provide the opportunity to attend a Catholic school to Catholic children whose parents are parishioners of Incarnation Parish as defined in section 5 below.  Specific priorities and guidelines help to provide a fair acceptance.  All families will be subject to an orientation process before final acceptance into the Incarnation School program.  Students are expected to meet academic, behavioral and work ethic standards.
