Admission Process

St. Clare School is a Catholic, parish-school community rooted in Gospel values and dedicated to the spiritual and educational development of the whole child. 

It is with this hopeful, positive, and values-based approach, coupled with our academically-strong curriculum, that we successfully nurture and educate children every day, helping them to attain their true potential and become life-long learners.  

We invite all families who embrace our mission and want to learn about our special community to come visit our school. You may visit us during our annual Open House or by appointment.

During the Open House, families are able to tour our facility, talk with our faculty, pick up a registration packet, schedule a visit with our principal, and learn more about the parish community, faculty, families, educational philosophy, and programming that make St. Clare such a special place for your children to grow.

If you can’t make it to Open House, please call us to schedule an appointment to tour the school and meet with the principal.

Application process for kindergarten:

  • Attend Open House or call the school
  • Pick up a registration packet
  • Schedule a parent/principal meeting and a short assessment for your child that confirms he/she is ready for success in kindergarten
  • Child meets with the kindergarten teacher for the assessment while parents meet with the principal; turn in completed registration form and required fees
  • Family is notified of acceptance
  • Registration is complete when remaining fees are paid and all completed forms are turned in

Newly registered kindergarten students will be invited to Kindergarten Roundup in the spring so they can spend part of a day in their kindergarten classroom with their new teachers, experiencing the environment and meeting their new classmates.

Application process for students in grades 1-7:

St. Clare welcomes children into grades 1-7 when space is available.  Please call to check availability and to schedule an appointment with the principal. New students in grades 1-7 transferring from another school will be evaluated during a one-day visit in the grade in which they are currently enrolled. The learning specialist conducts informal assessments in reading, writing, and math; we also observe social interaction. The benefit for the family and new student is to truly experience St. Clare and determine if there is a good fit for both the school and the family. After the student visit, a recommendation will be made regarding a student’s acceptance into the school. New students are considered for admission into 8th grade on an exception basis, only.
