Preschool Admissions

Thank you for your interest in Saint Joseph Preschool!

Saint Joseph Preschool admissions are operated separately from grades K-8 admissions at Saint Joseph Grade School. Enrollment in the preschool has no effect on admission into the grade school. There will be no correlation insofar as gaining an advantage from attending the preschool or suffering a disadvantage from not attending the preschool when it comes to the K-8 application at SJGS.

Enrollment priority for preschool programs begins with currently enrolled preschool families and registered and active members of Saint Joseph Parish, as determined by the Pastor.

Eligibility

3/4 Program: children must turn three before August 1 of the year of enrollment, and be fully potty trained.

Pre-K 4/5 Program: children must turn four before August 1 of the year of enrollment.

Pre-K 5/6 Program: placement priority begins with children who are five by December 31 of the year of enrollment.
