Enrollment Procedures

Roman Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of New York base their educational purpose and all their activities on the Christian teaching of the essential equality of all persons as rooted in God’s love.

Thus, with discrimination so repugnant to their nature and mission, Catholic Schools in this Archdiocese do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin, and gender in administration of educational policies,admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs.

This policy is subscribed to by all Catholic elementary and secondary schools in the Archdiocese of New York whether owned or operated by the Archdiocese, the parishes of the Archdiocese or religious communities with the Archdiocese.

The process for admission to St. Paul School is: parents must complete the school application form and provide all required documents. Following an interview and evaluation of the materials, the parent will be notified about the status of the child.

St. Paul School gives preference in admission first, to siblings of currently enrolled students; second, to Catholic students whose parents are active members of the parish; third, to Catholic students whose parents are active in another Catholic parish; fourth, to non-Catholic students.

There are four days set aside each year, two in February and two in March, for enrollment in our school. On these days, anyone wishing to enroll at St. Paul’s can come to the school and fill out the appropriate application forms. Original Birth and Baptismal Certificates are needed if the child was baptized somewhere other than St. Paul’s. A copy of the last report card is requested for all students registering for Grades 2 – 7. If you are not able to register on those days, you may call the school for an appointment.
