Priority 1: Students whose families are registered, established, and active parishioners of Sacred Heart as verified by the use of Church envelopes and whose families submit their registration by the
required dates.

Priority 2: Students who have siblings currently attending Sacred Heart School.

Priority 3: Transferring Catholic school students whose families will be registering at Sacred Heart Church;

Priority 4: Students from other parishes and recently registered Sacred Heart families;

Priority 5: Non-Catholic students from outside the Parish whose families will support the school.

All incoming kindergartners must be five years old before September 1st of the current school year. A pupil entering the first grade must be six years of age before September 1st of the current school year.

All students must comply with current California immunization and health requirements prior to enrollment.

NONDISCRIMINATION POLICIES
SCHOOL STUDENT NON-DISCRIMINATION POLICY


The school, mindful of its mission to be a witness to the love of Christ for all, admits students regardless of race, color, national origin, and/or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.

The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, disability, medical condition, sex, or national and/or ethnic origin in the administration of educational policies and practices, scholarship programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs, although certain athletic leagues and other programs may limit participation and some archdiocesan schools operate as single-sex schools.

While the school does not discriminate against students with special needs, a full range of services may not always be available to them. Decisions concerning the admission and continued enrollment of a student in the school are based upon the student's emotional, academic, and physical abilities and the resources available to the school in meeting the student's needs.
