Registration Process

Current Student preferred registration begins in January.  DeSales operates on a rolling admissions basis, and all classrooms are filled first come, first served.   Interested new families may also schedule an appointment to visit DeSales any school day. If you would like to tour DeSales, please contact our  Admissions Director Kim Knuutila at 433-6422 ext 407 to schedule a visit and learn answers to all of your enrollment questions.

Registration Requirements:

New students are invited to submit an Application for Admission, along with a $100 Application fee. This fee is refundable only in the instance where student demand exceeds available classroom space. Applications for the upcoming school year are also available in the DeSales Main Office from 8:00am - 3:30pm any school day.

A Registration fee of $100.00 per student is required to confirm registration for each school year. This fee is not refundable.

To enter Kindergarten in September, the student must be 5 years old by December 1st of their Kindergarten year. All students entering Kindergarten must submit a copy of a birth certificate and, if applicable, a baptismal certificate upon registration. All newly enrolled Kindergarten students participate in Academic screening in June.

Transfer Students:  Students wishing to Transfer to DeSales Catholic School (other than K and Early Childhood programs) must also schedule an interview with the Principal, and supply academic records from their current school. In addition to an Application for Admission, new students must also complete a Registration form, and provide student identification and complete educational records, including academic screening and health records.  All acceptances are provisional until all records are received, and it has been determined that DeSales Catholic School can serve a student’s particular needs.  As a school policy, please note that Transfer students may not be accepted to enroll in Grade 8.
