Admissions Policy of Non-Discrimination


Saint Anselm School is a Catholic elementary school providing a quality Catholic education to children of families who are registered members of Saint Anselm Parish.

Saint Anselm School admits students of any race, nationality and ethnic origin to all programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students. We do not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, creed or color, religion, national or ethnic origin, disability or impairment, in administration of our educational and admission policies.


Admission Priority


Students will be considered for admission to Saint Anselm School on the basis of academic ability, conduct, and moral character according to the following priorities:

  1. Parishioners: i.e., children of families who are registered in, attend and contribute to Saint Anselm Parish. Evidence of Catholic practice includes attendance at weekend liturgy, regular use of church envelopes, and support of the values taught in the Catholic faith.

  2. Siblings of children already enrolled in Saint Anselm School.

  3. Catholics from Holy Angels and Divine Word Parishes, according to the same guidelines outlined above.

  4. Catholic families from parishes without an elementary school: i.e., non-parishioners who are registered in, attend, and contribute to a parish without an elementary school.

  5. Catholics from parishes with an elementary school: i.e., non-parishioners who are registered in, attend and contribute to a parish with an elementary school with the specific written permission of the pastor.

  6. Non-Catholics: i.e., children of families of other faiths who desire a Catholic education. Those families who live within Saint Anselm Parish boundaries are given preference.

The pastor, in collaboration with the principal, will determine who may be admitted to Saint Anselm School consistent with parish and diocesan policies.
