OLPH School is first and foremost a Catholic school that strives to provide quality education in an atmosphere informed by Gospel values.
Any student interested in pursuing an education in such an atmosphere, and willing to meet the religious, academic, social, and behavioral standards of OLPH School may apply to become part of the school community. No child will be denied admission on the basis of color, race, gender, or ethnic origin.
Admission of any student is based on the willingness and ability of the student to meet the religious, academic, social, and behavioral standards of OLPH School and on the school’s ability to meet the child’s needs.
New Pre-K and Kindergarten students are admitted on a space available basis with priority given to qualified siblings of presently enrolled students, kindergarten applicants deferred from the previous academic year, followed by parishioners, and then non-parishioners. Parents of potential kindergartners are asked to complete a questionnaire, which helps in the admission process.
New students for other grades are also admitted on a space available basis with priority given to qualified siblings of presently enrolled students, followed by parishioners, and then non-parishioners.
Admission decisions are determined by an admissions committee composed of the principal, assistant principal, classroom teacher, and the reading specialist.
All admission decisions are conditioned on the receipt of all required and requested documentation. No admission decision is final until all documentation is received.
