Registration

Policy

St. Margaret of Scotland School admits students from Catholic families belonging to the Parish, provided they meet the school qualifications.  Other qualifying students are admitted if space is available after parishioners have been admitted.  The Pastor, advised by the Principal, is the final authority in all admission decisions. 

Criteria

  • Students are admitted to St. Margaret of Scotland School without discrimination as to race, color, national or ethnic origin and all students have the rights, privileges and opportunities for programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students within the school.
  • Parents/guardians desiring to enroll their students in St. Margaret’s must understand and be willing to support the Mission and Statement of Beliefs for St. Margaret of Scotland School.
  • The Pastor in consultation with the principal will admit students to the school with priority given to parishioners.
  • Parents/guardians must desire a school where Catholic teaching and moral formation are integral to the curriculum, as well as, being committed to participating in the spiritual, social and financial life of the parish/school.
