"Young people of the third millennium must be a source of energy and leadership in our Church and our nation. Therefore, we must provide young people with an academically rigorous and doctrinally sound program of education and faith formation designed to strengthen their union with Christ and his Church."   
United States Conference of Catholic Bishops 

A student is admitted to St. Barbara School after a grade appropriate assessment has been administered and active report card grades (available at the time of testing) are evaluated. Birth certificates, baptismal records, immunization records, and other pertinent legal documents are also required. Acceptance is based upon results of the assessment, satisfactory report card grades and/or recommendations from the preceding school. All students entering St. Barbara School are automatically placed on first quarter probationary status. Each child's adjustment and progress as to academics, conduct, effort, homework completion, and social achievement will be evaluated after the first quarter to determine continued membership in school. Academic and social progress must indicate satisfactory achievement.

It is of utmost importance that parents agree to actively support the spiritual, academic, volunteer and fund-raising programs of the school.  It is also important that parents remember that their support of the school, especially in regards to prompt payment of tuition and a willingness to volunteer is a prerequisite to re-registration and a condition for continued presence in the school.  The school may deny re-admission to any family delinquent in tuition or who has not met the volunteer hours requirement.  In addition, failure to support the philosophy, objectives and policies of the school may also result in non-admission.  If volunteering is not possible because of time constraints, an additional financial assessment will be added to the tuition statement.
