2017-2018 Kindergarten Admission Requirements:
Child should be 5 years old by September 1, 2017
Along with completed application and pre-school evaluation/recommendation, there is a $60 screening fee. Fee may also apply for First grade applicants.
Upon submission of application, the school will schedule a developmental screening for school readiness in mid February. The developmental screening helps educators and parents to know where a child is in relation to typical growth patterns. The child-friendly tasks are specifically designed to allow the child to feel successful within his or her developmental level.
In addition to a completed application, copies of report cards and copies of a writing assignment for grades 2–8, an interview and recommendations are required. Students applying for grades 1–8 are encouraged to “shadow” for a day at St. Francis Solano to experience the school personally.
Upon acceptance to any grade, a formal acceptance letter will be sent. A more detailed school information packet will be available in June, which includes a calendar of important dates, uniform requirements, and other necessary forms.
