Our Lady of Perpetual Help School, Home of the Saints


Admission Policy

Our Lady of Perpetual Help School, mindful of its mission to be witness to the love of Christ for all, admits students of any race, color, and national and/or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded to or made available to students at this school. OLPH does not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of race, color, and national and/or ethnic origin, age, sex, or disability in administration of educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs. Likewise, OLPH does not unlawfully discriminate against any applicant for employment on the basis of age, sex, disability, race, color, and national and/or ethnic origin. Admission of students with special needs will be dependent on the school's ability to meet those needs. Our Lady of Perpetual Help School is fully accredited by both the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA).

Applications may be obtained from the school office after January 1 each year. Birth and baptismal certificates, along with complete immunization records, must accompany the completed application form and testing fee. Students entering Kindergarten must show evidence of attendance at preschool. Students entering Grades 1-8 must also show proof of appropriate academic progress and/or promotion (report cards, etc.).

New applicants are tested in February/March each year. The test measures the academic readiness of each child for his/her appropriate grade level. After test results are discussed between the teacher administering the test and the principal, parents are notified by the school office of their child's status for the following school year.

Final acceptance of a child into OLPH is contingent on the completion and filing of all necessary forms and payment of the non-refundable Registration Fee.
