We, Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic School, take responsibility for learning and Christ-like behavior to continue the mission of the Church.

Admissions Process

Welcome to our family!

 

Our application and registration process is all online utilizing our student database system – Sycamore.  Prior to attending OLA, all new students must go through an Admissions Process.  This process is abbreviated for those families who are already part of our community.   Those who have attended OLA during the 2019-20 school year are already admitted and their admissions remains good through graduation at 8th grade assuming continuous enrollment.  Once admitted, new students and current students must register for the upcoming school year.  

 

ADMISSION OF NEW STUDENTS WHOSE FAMILY IS NEW TO THE SCHOOL

 

Step #1: Inquiry

Families interested in applying to our school should submit an inquiry form.   This can be done through our website (www.olacs.org).   This inquiry begins the application process.   Upon receiving your inquiry, a school official will be in contact with you.   The application process will be reviewed, and questions answered.   The link to submit the application will be sent to you.   

 

Step #2: Application
Families interested in applying to the school will need to complete an application. The application can be accessed online through a link provided by the school. The school uses our student data-base (Sycamore) to facilitate the application and registration process. Families can complete the application utilizing their own device or access it through a computer in the school office.

 

As part of the application the following must be submitted:

  • Online Application
  • Birth Certificate
  • Baptismal Certificate (If applicable)

Step#3: Interview with Family
Once the application is completed, the family will be scheduled for a family interview. The purpose of the interview is to introduce the family to the mission and values of the school. It is to establish the expectations crucial to the success of our Catholic school.

Step #4: Enrollment Decision
An admissions committee will review all applications for enrollment. Applications will be reviewed in the order they are received. The committee, in their review, will ensure that there is alignment between the family and the school around the school mission, values, and expectations. The committee will also ensure that the school can properly meet the educational needs of the student(s).
