Whenever a student enrolls at Saint Paul from another school,
he or she will be placed on probation for a period of six weeks.
During that time, we will monitor the student and report to the
parents how the student is adjusting to our school. At the end
of the six-week probationary period, the teacher and principal
will meet to assess the academic performance and behavior of the
child and decide if the student’s needs can be adequately
met at our school. The teacher will then contact the parents to
discuss how the child has progressed over the course of the probationary
period and whether or not the child can remain a student at Saint
Paul Catholic School.
No student will be excluded from enrolling solely because of race,
color, sex, national origin or ancestry. All children must meet
the immunization requirements established by the State of Indiana.
No child may enter our school owing an outstanding financial bill
from the previous school year either from another Catholic school
or our own school.
