Transferring Students

Students must possess average grades or above in academic subjects and conduct, and take a placement test with the authorized school testing agency. Birth and baptismal certificates, current report card, and standardized test results must be presented at the time of registration. Parents are asked to agree to actively support the spiritual, academic, and disciplinary standards of St. Bruno Catholic School. Parents must also agree to meet their financial and service hour obligations as part of the admission contract. Final approval of the principal is necessary before admission. All new students will be placed on academic and conduct probation for a period of at least one trimester, during which time school staff and parents will assist the student in working towards a successful adjustment to St. Bruno’s school life and standards.

General Admission Policy

All incoming students, upon satisfactory completion of the admissions procedure, will be admitted as follows:

  • If room is available, students who currently have siblings in the school AND who otherwise qualify will have preference.
  • If room is available, students who otherwise qualify and whose families are registered and active parishioners in St. Bruno Parish will be accorded the next level of preference.
  • If room is available, transferring students who qualify and whose families registered in the parish and become active will be accorded the next level of preference.
  • If room is available, qualifying students from neighboring Catholic parishes without a parish school will be accorded the next level of preference.
  • If room is available, other qualifying students, who by their behavior and attitude demonstrate an acceptance of St. Bruno Catholic School philosophy, will be accorded the next level of preference.


The school, mindful of its mission to be a witness to the love of Christ for all, admits students regardless of race, color, or national and/or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.

The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, disability, sex, or national and/or ethnic origin in the administration of educational policies and practices, scholarship programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs, although certain athletic leagues and other programs may limit participation and some archdiocesan schools operate as single sex schools.

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.

All students and parents are required to abide by the Code of Christian Conduct.
