To ensure your child’s success, it is very important that your child is academically and socially ready for admission to St. Lucy School. A student assessment is required as part of the application process. PreK and Kindergarten applicants will be assessed using the Gesell Institute developmental screening: http://www.gesellinstitute.org/parents. Students will receive a 45 minute assessment appointment time. Transfer applicants applying for Grades 18 are required to attend an allday shadow visit in the student’s current grade level classroom, which will also include an academic assessment appointment with our VicePrincipal for students in grades 48. During the summer, students will meet with our VicePrincipal/Principal for an individual assessment.
The school principal and pastor, following this stated policy, shall make decisions on admission. Where there are more qualified applicants than spaces for any particular grade, students will be accepted or placed on a waiting list according to the following priorities:
- Age Requirement: Children entering PreKindergarten must be four years old by 09/01/16. Children entering Kindergarten must be five years old by 09/01/16.
- Applicants applying before the priority deadline of January 29, 2016.
- Sibling of students currently enrolled in St. Lucy School
