Admissions

Thank you for your interest in Saint Joseph School. At SJS we are proud to provide our preschool through eighth grade students with a faith based, academically challenging education. When our students graduate from SJS in eighth grade they are prepared for the next step in their academic journey.

If you are interested in learning more about Saint Joseph School or would like to schedule a personal tour of our school please contact our Director of Development, Amanda Koerner, by calling 717-766-2564 or by email at akoerner@sjsmch.org.

 

The following items must be presented at the time of registration:

  • Copy of Birth certificate
  • Copy of Baptismal certificate
  • Copy of most recent immunization records
  • Completed Saint Joseph School Student Registration Form
  • A $125 non-refundable, per family registration fee (check payable to Saint Joseph School)

The school requires that an entrant for Kindergarten be five years old by September 30. No testing is mandated for kindergarten entrance, but screening is done prior to the start of school to evaluate physical development, ability to listen and follow directions, along with fine and gross motor skills.

Children of Saint Joseph, Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, and Katharine Drexel parishioners are given preference before non-parishioners in the order of acceptance. Parishioners are considered to be those who have registered with the parish and are active members.

Saint Joseph School admits students of any race, sex, color, national origin, age (according to age requirements) or disability and are accorded the rights and privileges of all students.
