Admission Policy and Procedures


     The school has an open admission policy. No person, on the grounds of race, color, disability or national origin, is excluded or otherwise subjected to discrimination in the receiving of services. Nor does the school discriminate in hiring, promotion, discharge, pay, fringe benefits, job training, classification, referral and other aspects of employment on the basis of race, color, disability, age, gender, national origin. 
     The school views the education of a student as a partnership between the parents and the school. Parents and students are expected to comply with the school rules and policies, and to accept and year, support the authority of school officials. Just as a parent can withdraw a child from the school if desired, the school has the right to disenroll a student if it determines at its discretion that the parent or student partnership with the school is irretrievably broken. 


You may register for the current year at any time. 2019-2020 admission forms are available now!

     For new students: there is a normal application process: students are accepted based upon their conduct, scores on standardized tests, and report cards. New students may be required to take an entrance exam to assess their knowledge as they enter a new grade level.

     For all students the following documentation, plus the activity and registration fees, must be on record in order to register students: birth certificate, copy of social security card, HRS 680, HRS 3040, report card showing promotion to current grade, and certificates for Sacraments (if Catholic). Students who do not have these forms on file may be barred 
from attending classes.

     All new students entering St. Ambrose School are placed on Academic and Disciplinary Probation for the school year. Students will be evaluated on a monthly basis. Those students who have not shown cooperation in either area may be asked to leave St. Ambrose School. .
