The Admissions Process for the 2016-2017 School Year will open on January 31st. Information about the application process will be available at our Open House on January 31st from 10am-2pm
Admission to Sacred Heart School involves an application process. The application process at Sacred Heart School involves several steps. Before you consider applying, please be sure that your child is the appropriate age for the grade you want him or her to enter. Children entering Kindergarten must be five years old by September 30th. Children entering first grade must be six by September 30th of the entry year. Documentation of proof of age is required.
Step I- Apply online using TADS, our Enrollment and Admissions service.
Step II- Submit the $50.00 non-refundable application fee online.
Submit required documentation:
No action will be taken on your application until all required information has been received.
The Review Committee will evaluate all the requested documentation/materials provided. The school will make an evaluation upon the completion of Step II to determine if a student will be considered for admission. If so, the student will move on to Step III, which is the Admission Screening.
Students not being considered for admissions will be notified at the completion of Step II.
