Policy

ADMISSION POLICIES
The Catholic schools in the Diocese of Oakland, mindful of their mission to be witnesses to
the love of Christ for all, admit students of any race, color, and national and/or ethnic origin to
all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to
students at the schools. The Catholic schools in the Diocese of Oakland do not discriminate on
the basis of race, color, national and/or ethnic origin, sex, or disability in the administration of
educational policies, scholarships and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered
programs.


Candidates for admission must submit with the application a copy of the following:
1. Official Birth Certificate
2. Baptismal Certificate (if Baptized Catholic)
3. Immunization Record
4. Report Card (grades K-8)
5. $75.00 Non-refundable processing fee per child


All admission candidates desiring acceptance in Preschool, Pre-kindergarten, Kindergarten,
or First Grade must meet the following age requirements:
Preschool age 3 on or before September 1st
Pre-Kindergarten age 4 on or before September 1st
Kindergarten age 5 on or before September 1st
First Grade age 6 on or before September 1st


The following priorities are applicable in accepting students for available openings:
1. Brothers or sisters of those currently enrolled
2. Practicing Catholics and alumni families
3. All others


Procedure:
1. Parents make application along with necessary forms.
2. Candidates will take a placement test. Since the school has limited means of
providing for students with special needs, it is important that we evaluate our
ability to meet each student’s requirements.
3. School personnel evaluate the candidate’s performance on the placement test
and the information from the previous school regarding the candidate’s
academic, behavioral and social progress.
4. Parents and candidates may be interviewed by the principal.
5. On the basis of all the above information, parents will be informed of the final
acceptance or non-acceptance of their child to St. Peter Martyr School.
Students shall be admitted to St. Peter Martyr School if they have a
reasonable, well founded hope of successfully completing the school’s
program, provided there is space available.
