3. Consideration of Applicants

While persons of all faiths are accepted into St. Christopher School each year, for new Pre-kindergarten through 6th grade applicants we do give priority to:

  • Families who currently have a child or children enrolled at St. Christopher School
  • Registered parishioners of St. Christopher Parish
  • Students previously enrolled in a Catholic school
  • Children of St. Christopher School alumni
  • Date application was submitted
  • Reasons for sending child to St. Christopher School

 

4. Application Decision

St. Christopher School will contact all families with active applications beginning on February 1, 2015. You will receive a letter from St. Christopher School with the status of your application at that time. Families with accepted children will then have 10 days to return the Enrollment Acceptance Form, a $150 non-refundable Registration Fee, and a Release of Records Form, when applicable. If an applicant’s family does not respond within the 10 days, the open seat will be given to another student.

 

In-house Registration

Current St. Christopher families will be invited to register for the 2015-2016 school year prior to the placement of new students.

 

Families with a child currently in grades PreKindergarten through 1st grade receive a Registration Form on November 5, 2014. Registrations will be due for these students on November 26, 2014. With this registration, the child is guaranteed a seat in the appropriate grade for the next school year. Registrations for siblings of current St. Christopher School students are also accepted during this time and will result in a guaranteed seat in the appropriate grade. In-house registrations for grades PreKindergarten to 2nd grade that are received after the due date of November 26, 2014 will be placed in the “open” pool of applicants for these grades, which will include students from outside the current school community. In the case of a late registration, no seat is guaranteed for the student.

 

Families with a child currently in grades 3 through 6 at St. Christopher School receive their in-house registration materials on January 5, 2015, with a due date of January 23, 2015 for a guaranteed seat in the appropriate grade. Registrations returned after this date will be placed in the "open" pool of applicants and no seat is guaranteed for the student.

 

Age for Admisson

 

All children must be four years of age on or before September 30 to enter Pre-Kindergarten, five years of age on or before September 30 to enter Kindergarten, and six years of age on or before September 30 to enter Grade 1. A record of birth and appropriate immunization record must be presented to the school at time of registration.

 

 

Vaccinations

An appropriate immunization record is required. The State of New Hampshire provides to all physician or clinics an official New Hampshire Immunization Record. This immunization schedule has been recommended by the New Hampshire Division of Public Health Services (DPHS) derived from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and Immunization Practices Advisory Committee (ACIP).

Children between 2 months and 18 years of age who are admitted or enrolled in school or day care centers are required by RSA 141:C to have been immunized against measles, mumps, rubella, DTP and Polio. Children between 15 months and three years enrolled in a child care agency must have one dose HIB after 15 months. Children born after January 1, 1988, must be vaccinated against measles on or after 15 months of age. A second measles vaccination is required for students entering 7th grade. A record of acceptable immunization must be submitted by parent/guardian to enroll a child in any school or day care center unless exempted for health or religious reasons. All children must have a physical examination prior to entering Kindergarten or Grade 1.
