Student Admission Requirements (K-6)
If a child has successfully completed the previous school year and his schoolwork and behavior compare favorably to Caritas Academy’s standards, he will be placed in the grade for which he is applying. However, if there is evidence that the child may not be adequately prepared for the next sequential grade level, he may be required to repeat the previous grade.
The student should understand that his parents have delegated their authority to the school during the school day. Therefore, the child is subject to the instruction and discipline of the teacher and the Head of School in their prescribed roles at Caritas.
Caritas Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, or sex in the administration of its policies, admissions, financial aid, and other school-directed programs.
Parents should have a clear understanding of our unique classical educational approach. Parents should carefully read the informational materials about the school. We also strongly encourage each parent to read the book by Douglas Wilson, Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning, as one of the best texts for explaining the kind of program we offer at Caritas Academy.
Parents are required to cooperate with all the written policies of Caritas Academy. This is especially important in the area of discipline and schoolwork standards, as well as active communication with the respective teachers and administration. In addition, parents are strongly encouraged to become active volunteers in other areas of the school.
