The enrollment process for new families has 3 steps. Our Admissions Coordinator, Jennifer Wilcomb, will walk you through the enrollment process. As you complete each step, Mrs. Wilcomb will sign off to ensure that both parties (the school and the family) know where your family stands in the enrollment process.
Step 1: Visit SHJ
The selection of a school for your child is an important decision. SHJ welcomes parents of prospective students to spend some time in the building during the school day. We would welcome the opportunity to tell you about our school, give you a tour of our campus and provide you with the information you need.
Bring A Friend to School Day Or Shadowing introduces a student to the learning experience at Sacred Heart of Jesus School. By shadowing a host student, for either a whole or half day, a visiting student will get a good feel for day to day life at SHJS. Of course, special things are included: the entire class does a get to know you activity, lunch on us, and the visiting student receives a Sacred Heart of Jesus shirt to help them remember their special visit.
Step 2: Submit an Application
Once your family has toured the school, and your student has spent time in the classroom, the next step is to complete an application for admission. Submit the completed application along with any additional required documents and the registration fee to the SHJ School Office in order to be considered for enrollment.
Once all of the required paperwork above has been submitted, your child will be invited to participate in an academic assessment.
Step 3: Enrollment and Registration
After your child's application has been received and he/she has been accepted by Sacred Heart of Jesus School, you will receive an explanation of our Smart Tuition, given a Smart Tuition form to complete and a Tuition Contract to sign. Your registration will then be complete.
Students wait listed for a class will be accepted in the following order:
a. Actively affiliated Sacred Heart of Jesus parish families
b. Actively affiliated families of another parish
c. Non-affiliated families
