It is the policy of St. Mary of the Assumption School that we do not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, disability, and/or national ethnic origin in the administration of our educational policies, admissions policies, tuition assistance, and any other school administration programs. Since St. Mary of the Assumption School is a parish school, preference in admissions is given to registered and participating members of St. Mary of the Assumption Parish. A parishioner is defined as one registered in St. Mary of the Assumption Parish who attends Mass regularly and uses the envelope system. Consideration for admission will be given in the following descending priority, where spaces are available, within the recommended class size:
All new students are accepted on a probationary basis for one year. The purpose of this policy is to determine whether St. Mary of the Assumption School can meet the student’s needs and if the student is able to adjust to the unique and challenging environment of our Catholic school.
Students with academic, psychological, emotional, physical, educational or other needs, exceeding the scope and resources of St. Mary of the Assumption School, will not be accepted.
