How to Apply

Our application for our current school year and next school year are now available online. We encourage you to submit your application soon as classes fill up quickly. Students applying after a class becomes full and closes will be placed on a waiting list on a first come first served basis. Openings, if they occur, will be filled from the waiting list.

St. Isidore Catholic School admits students of any race, color, nationality or ethnic origin. We give all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to all students. The school does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color or national and ethnic origin in the administration of educational policies, athletics or other school programs.

Transitional Kindergarten admittance is dependent upon a child having reached 5 years old by March 1st. Transitional kindergarten is for children who do not make the age deadline for kindergarten or for those students who are not developmentally ready for kindergarten.

Kindergarten admittance is dependent upon the child having reached his or her fifth birthday prior to September 1 of the respective academic year.
