K-5 Enrollment

St. Paul Lutheran School welcomes students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, athletics, and other school-administered programs.

The parent(s) or legal guardians of the prospective student seeking admission to St. Paul Lutheran School need to complete an Enrollment Form and submit it to the office with the appropriate registration fee in order for the enrollment process to begin. Students are then interviewed by the school principal and tested by a teacher. The purpose of the interview/testing is to assess the child's academic ability and social needs. Parents must provide the school with a copy of the student’s final report card and the results of the most recent standardized test. A copy of the child’s birth certificate and an immunization form must also be submitted to the office prior to enrollment.

The parent is contacted after the testing is completed to inform them of the child's acceptance into the school or to give reasons why St. Paul is unable to enroll their child. Children are accepted into the school on a six-week probationary period. At the conclusion of this time period, a conference will be held between the parent and teacher/principal. If no concerns have arisen, the child will be removed from probation and will become a fully enrolled student. This probation may be extended, or the child's attendance may be terminated if it is felt that the child's needs are not being met.

Children will be accepted based on the ability of St. Paul Lutheran School to meet their educational needs. There are cases where children have needs beyond our expertise and resources; in those cases, St. Paul will not be able to accept those children into the school.
