Enrollment

Enrolling your children in a Catholic school is a partnership among the family, the parish, and the school. A Catholic school education is a privilege, and not a right. For parishioners who complete and fulfill their annual stewardship commitments, our pastor will make a good faith effort to provide for their children’s Catholic education. Specifically, what is expected of all of the families in our parish is to:

  • Attend Sunday Mass and Holy Days of Obligation at Holy Name
  • Participate in the sacraments
  • Actively participate in parish ministries
  • Make and keep a good faith pledge of treasure, with a goal of 8% of your gross income to the parish and 2% to your favorite charities

New Students

Parents of new students are required to meet with the Pastor to discuss their desire for their child to enroll at Holy Name Catholic School and discuss financial arrangements.

Admission

Catholic schools reserve the right to admit or deny admission or continued enrollment to any student, including Catholic students.
