Enrollment

Families of Saint Patrick Parish and the Carlisle Barracks Catholic community who desire an educational experience founded on the Catholic philosophy of education have equal eligibility for admission to Saint Patrick School. The request for admission of students from Saint Patrick Parish are reviewed based on the family’s parish registration, coupled with their commitment in church attendance and faithful parish support. After accommodating the eligible families of Saint Patrick Parish and the Carlisle Barracks Catholic community, Saint Patrick School may provide space for children from other Catholic parishes without schools and from families of other faiths.

For Catholic parishioners of Saint Patrick Parish the minimal expectation for eligibility is as follows:

  • Proper registration of the family in Saint Patrick Parish
  • Active practice of the Catholic faith by the family as evidenced in weekly attendance at Mass, participation in the sacramental life of the parish, and in school and parish activities
  • Financial support of the parish through the use of weekly church envelopes or other identifiable means

Families registered in the parish who fail to fulfill the above listed qualifications will be expected to pay the Non-Catholic rate.

Saint Patrick School will not discriminate based on sex, race, religion, national origin, age, physical handicap or disability. Enrollment shall not exceed 25 students in any class except when approved by the principal and the pastor. For admission to grade one, a child shall be six by 1 September of the school year in question. Children who reach the age of five by September 1 may be admitted to kindergarten. A school screening evaluates the child’s vision, hearing, physical development, ability to listen and follow directions, and fine motor skills. Application for admission of new students will take place primarily from December through February.
