5K Admission

Five Year Old Kindergarten Admission Policy

Kindergartners will be accepted according to the following priorities:

  1. Children must be 5 years of age on or before 9/1 in the year the child proposes to enter school. (Based on Archdiocesan Policy and Wisconsin State Statute 118.14).
  2. Children who presently have older brothers and sisters in the school.
  3. Children presently in St. Mary’s Four Year Old Kindergarten Program.
  4. Children whose brothers and sisters have already graduated from the parish school.
  5. Students remaining on waiting list from prior school year.
  6. New students from families who are parishioners of St. Mary Parish. Parish membership date will be the primary selection criterion. 
  7. The children of past graduates whose families are current parishioners.
  8. New students from a non-parishioner but Catholic family who want to attend St. Mary Parish School.
  9. Non-Catholic family.
  10. If a tie is still noted, a lottery drawing will be made.
