In order to be admitted to Kindergarten, a child must be five years of age on or before September 1st and pass a standardized readiness test administered by Blessed Sacrament Catholic School.
In order to be admitted to First Grade, a child must be six years of age on or before September 1st. For those who do not exhibit proper readiness, an interview with the parents is recommended to determine procedures to be followed. All families seeking admission to grades 1-8 should schedule an interview with the school administration.
Students wishing to transfer from another school, must present this year’s and the previous year’s report cards, and standardized test scores if applicable. Further testing may be required.
Student transfers to or from home schooling are not an option provided by the Catholic Schools of the Archdiocese because of the importance of socializing the student in a Catholic faith community, establishment of a positive self-image and the development of relationships with adults and other students. However, we recognize parents’ rights to choose an academic institution best meeting their child’s needs. Students wishing to transfer from unaccredited schools or home schooling must present this year’s and the previous year’s report cards, and standardized test scores if applicable. Further testing may be required.
Temporary placement of transfer students is based on previous records and an interview. All new students are on probation for a period of time, and final placement is made after the probation period and teacher observation.
