2024-2025 Application Process

Thank you for your interest with Holy Spirit Catholic School. Please note that your child(ren) must be between the age of 3-6 years of age on or before September 1st in order to attend PK3, PK4, K5, or first grade. Furthermore, Holy Spirit Catholic School does not routinely accept 8th grade transfer students and if so it is at the discretion of the administration. 

Admission into Holy Spirit Catholic School is selective. It is based on academic competence and personal potential within the Holy Spirit curriculum, considering information gained from past school records, standardized tests, pre-admission assessments, student questionnaires, and personal interaction. Admission and financial aid decisions are made without regard to race, sex, color, religion, or national or ethnic origin.
