The priority screening date is Saturday, February 3rd (your child's application must be complete by February 1st to be included in this screening). Students are screened to determine their aptitude in language arts, math, and in writing skills.
All students in grades 2-8 are required to have a classroom visit as part of their Admissions Process. After successful completion of their screening, students will be notified of their classroom visit date. The student will spend an entire school day at Greenwich Catholic where they will meet teachers and peers. Students screened on February 3rd will have a classroom visit on one of the following days: February 5, 6, 7, 8, 21, 22 or 23.
All new students are accepted on a provisional basis, contingent on the successful inclusion into our school. Students will be evaluated quarterly until the end of their first year. Admissions decisions will be mailed out on March 1st with an Acceptance Response due date of March 15th.
