Admissions/How to Register

Upon registering, prospective St. Cecilia students are screened to assess their academic levels so we can be sure we have the resources to provide for their individual needs. Students in grades 1-8 are screened by the school psychologist, while kindergartners and preschoolers are screened by the kindergarten & preschool teachers. To begin the registration process for your child, follow these steps (for preschool registration, click here)

All families new to St. Cecilia will be invited to a new parent orientation in the summer. Here you will learn about basic day-to-day procedures such as how to pay for lunch and drop-off/pick-up procedures. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions and meet other new parents.

Inclusion Policy
Admission shall not be based solely on ability or achievement. However, students with special needs will be accepted only on a case-by-case basis as openings exist.  An IEP must be made available prior to admission and reviewed by the Intervention Assistance Team (made up of the school psychologist, intervention specialist, resource teacher, and principal). Special needs students will be reviewed on an annual basis.

Policy of Non-Discrimination
St. Cecilia School admits students of any sex, race, color, nationality and ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs and any activities generally accorded or made available to students at St. Cecilia School.
