Admissions Process

Thank you for your interest in St. Patrick Catholic Preschool-Jr. High School. We encourage you to visit our campus during school hours for a tour. We also welcome your children to come for a class visit where they will meet the teacher and their potential classmates and spend part of the day with them. Please call the school office at 805-489-1210 to arrange for a tour or a classroom visit.

To be considered for enrollment, please submit the following documents to our school office. Upon receipt of these documents and completion of the interview/admission test, your student will be placed in the application pool.

  •          A completed application for enrollment.
  •          $30.00 application fee.
  •          A copy of the student’s birth certificate.
  •          A copy of the baptismal certificate, if baptized.
  •          A copy of the student’s immunization record, with immunizations up to date, according to state law.

  •          Copies of two most recent year’s standardized testing scores (if applicable).
  •          A letter of recommendation from the student’s previous teacher. (if applicable)

Upon completion of paperwork, a grade level readiness test will be given by appointment and evaluated by the teacher. The Principal and the teacher will determine if admission is advisable based on their evaluation of the information submitted, their interaction with the student and the admission test results.

Once a student is accepted, the student’s family will be given a Registration Packet.  Enrollment is complete only when:
