POLICIES AND CRITERIA

Although we would love to accept any child who applies to St. Brendan School, that is not always possible. We give priority to families with children already in the school; then to Catholic families who have been registered, contributing members of our parish for more than a year; then to other Catholic families; and finally to families of other faiths. We seek to enroll children whose capabilities will allow them to thrive at our school, and whose family values are consistent with our mission and philosophy.

While the majority of our families are Catholic, we welcome families of all faiths. The Catholic credo of “Do unto others as you would have done unto you” reflects a value system that resonates through multiple faith traditions and provides an excellent moral compass for all people. Non-Catholic students attend and participate in religion classes, but do not participate in the Sacraments.

St. Brendan School admits 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 school. St. Brendan School does not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and/or ethnic origin, sex, or disability in administration of educational policies, admissions policies, tuition assistance programs, and athletic or other school-administered programs.
