Along with completed application and preschool 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 late February to early March. 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.

Admission Requirements

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 2–8 are encouraged to “shadow” for a day at St. Francis Solano to experience the school personally.

Acceptance Letters

Upon acceptance to any grade, a formal acceptance acknowledgement will be sent. A  more detailed emailed school information packet will be available in June, which includes   a calendar of important dates, uniform requirements, and other necessary forms.  

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 Catholic 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.
