Admission Policies

Admission and Registration Policies

Parents wishing to send their children to St. Victor shall register during spring at the times designated by St. Victor School. 4K students are to be 4 years old, Kindergarten students are to be 5 years old, and first graders are to be 6 years old by September 1 of the year they seek admission to school.

St. Victor Educational Advisory Board policy recommends grade size limits as follows:

  • 16 for each ½ day 4K session
  • 25 for each of grades Kindergarten through 5.

Exceptions may be made to raise or lower the above limits at the discretion of St. Victor School.

St. Victor School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or sex.

New students may be screened before admission is finalized. Usually, St. Victor School will abide by the decision of the school from which the student is transferring in terms of grade placement.

St. Victor School does not have the facilities or personnel to service students with exceptional education needs. The recommendation of the previous school or the results of a formal evaluation will be the basis for determining exceptional education needs.

A registration fee equal to the anticipated per-student book and materials fee for the upcoming school year is due at the time of registration.  A student’s registration is not complete until the registration fee is paid, unless the principal in his or her sole discretion agrees to waive the registration fee because of economic hardship.

As a condition of the acceptance of a student’s registration, the registration fee becomes nonrefundable once registration acceptance is confirmed.  If the student attends St. Victor, the registration fee is then applied to that student’s book and materials fee.

Registration for the upcoming school year shall take place during three registration periods until all seats for a particular class are filled.  The three registration periods are as follows:

  1. The first registration period is for all families, parents, and legal guardians of children who are currently enrolled at St. Victor School, or who have previously attended St. Victor School.  This first registration period shall run from January 1 - January 31.
  2. The second registration period is for all families, parents, and legal guardians who are registered members of St. Victor Parish or other Catholic parishes.  This second registration period shall run from February 1 – February 28 (February 29 in leap-years).
  3. The third registration period is for all other families, parents, and legal guardians wishing to send their child to St. Victors School for the upcoming year.  This third registration period shall run from March 1 – March 31.

All applications will be subject to an initial screening.  Decisions upon applications received during an application period shall be made at the close of that application period.

In the event there are more applicants during an application period than open seats, then applications within that period will be accepted according to the following priority: 

  1. The family, parent, or legal guardian already has at least one child attending St. Victor School, 4K through 5th grade.
  2. The family, parent, or legal guardian is a registered member of St. Victor Parish. 
  3. The family, parent, or legal guardian is a registered member of any Catholic parish other than St. Victor.
  4. The family, parent, or legal guardian is not Catholic.  

Waiting lists, if necessary, shall also be compiled according to the above priority factors.  

The final tiebreaker, if necessary, shall be application date.  In that event, the earlier application shall receive preference.

If there are any open seats remaining after completion of the third registration period, those seats will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis after April 1.
