Qualified Catholic student applicants will be given equal consideration, if their application is received completed in full by SPBS on or before February 25th, 2015.
Priority for admission to SPBS is given to Catholic children of registered/active Saint Paschal Baylon Church parishioners. We also welcome applicants from other local Catholic parishes, as space permits in each grade level, Kindergarten through Eighth Grade.
Please Note: All Students applying to SPBS for Kindergarten must be 5 years of age PRIOR to September 1, 2015. Students applying to our First Grade must be at least 6 years of age prior to September 1st, 2015. There are no exceptions made to these age requirements at SPBS.
When the required SPBS application packet and evaluation process are complete, personal interviews will be scheduled with the school administration for all families, who wish to be considered for entrance into SPBS for the 2015-16 school year. In addition, student applicants for 6, 7, and/or 8th Grade need to be present at this family interview. There is a $60 application fee per child.
Applications to SPBS will be accepted for all grades – Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. However, only Baptized Catholic children, who are current in their Sacramental preparation, will be considered for admission into Saint Paschal Baylon School. There are special requirements for students applying to our Eighth Grade, so please contact the school directly regarding that grade level.

SPBS, mindful of its mission to be a witness to the love of Christ for all, admits students regardless of race, color, disability, sex, or national and/or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.
SPBS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, disability, sex, or national and/or ethnic origin in the administration of our educational policies and practices, scholarship programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs. Likewise, SPBS does not discriminate against any applicant for employment on the basis of sex, pregnancy, age, race, color, and national and/or ethnic origin.
While the school does not discriminate against students with special needs, a full range of services may not always be available to them. Decisions concerning the admission and continued enrollment of a student in the school are based upon the student’s emotional, academic and physical abilities and the resources available to the school in meeting the student’s needs.
