Families may submit their enrollment applications to the school office at our Enrollment Open House or any time after. All enrollment applications are stamped with the date/time of their receipt. Enrollment fees are refunded only if St. Joseph Consolidated School is unable to accept the registrant due to class size restrictions.
Processing of enrollment applications begins with the Admissions Staff. Applicant families will be contacted by our Admissions Staff for an appointment to be assessed for class placement and a shadow day for interested students. If students have an IEP or Educational Plan we ask that these documents are provided at assessment time. After a review of our assessments, families will be contacted for further direction.
Acceptance of applications is managed using a four-tiered prioritization approach as follows:
Tier I - Current St. Joseph Consolidated School students and their siblings
Tier II - New students from St. Aloysius and St. Joseph parishes
Tier III - New students from other Catholic parishes
Tier IV - All other new students
Enrollment applications received will be processed on a first come, first served basis.
Please print and complete the application below. It should then be mailed or dropped off to the school office with your $100 application fee.
