St. Louis School adheres to the Archdiocesan policy of admission that students who desire an educational experience founded on the Christian philosophy of education and who fulfill the age, health, and academic requirements as stated subsequently, are eligible for admission to Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Baltimore without discrimination.
Further, it is the policy of St. Louis School not to discriminate on the basis of religion, race, color, and/or national ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies and admission policies.
It is the policy of St. Louis School not to discriminate against any applicant because of gender in any educational program and activity. Additionally, students seeking admission to the Catholic schools as a refuge or haven or for reasons that violate the Christian principles upon which the schools are founded are not to be admitted.
Admission is dependent upon the availability of openings and is based on the following priorities:
- Children who have brothers and/or sisters in the school
- Children of families registered at St. Louis Parish (length of time registered and participation in parish life are considered)
- Children of newly registered families moving into St. Louis Parish, transferring from another parochial school
- Children of newly registered families moving into St. Louis Parish
- Children of Catholic non-parishioners
The religion of non-Catholics will be respected; however, the parents of such students will agree prior to admission that the non-Catholic student will fully participate in the St. Louis School religion curriculum, prayer, liturgies, and activities, with the exception of those activities not permitted by the Catholic Church, such as receiving sacraments.
