SPES Application and Admissions Process

About The St. Pius Elementary School

Application and Admissions Process

At St. Pius Elementary School, our goal is to assist our students in reaching their full

potential as they discover, develop and learn to share their gifts.   Through our extensive

application and screening process our goal is to get to know your child and make sure that

he/she will be successful and thrive at our school. 

 

 

THE ST. PIUS (SPES) APPLICATION PROCESS

Step One -- Application

In the application, we begin our process of getting to know the potential

student.  This step provides us with demographic and developmental

information as well as other pertinent facts to assist us in not only

determining if we can set a child up for success at St. Pius but also how

the child learns best, his/her likes and dislikes and whether St. Pius

is the right "fit" for the student. 

 

Step Two -- Screening

Screenings are conducted by a member of our academic staff and/or

one of our academic assistant principals.  The process is designed to

accurately determine the student’s readiness for the rigors of the St. Pius

curriculum.  Just as each child has different gifts to share, each child

learns differently.  Through our assessment and screening, we can

determine not only what a child knows, but how they learn best. 

 

Step Three – Notification of Acceptance

 

Once an application is reviewed, screening has been conducted and it

has been determined that the applicant will thrive at St. Pius,

notification of acceptance is sent via email by the Admissions Assistant

and an offer of enrollment is extended. Families have 72 hours during

which to accept the offer.  When a child is enrolled into St. Pius

Elementary, we feel that we know their abilities and capabilities well

enough to ensure that they are ready and able to thrive in the classroom.
