In accordance with the Texas Catholic Conference accreditation standards, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School complies with all age and immunization requirements of the State of Texas and the Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth. As a Catholic, non-public school dedicated to academic excellence within a disciplines, value-centered environment, the school actively seeks students and families who have a positive attitude toward the value of a traditional Catholic education.
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School requires that a student entering the PK3 program be 3 years of age by September 1st. Students entering the PK4 program must be 4 years of age by September 1st. Students must be potty-trained. According to Texas State Law, a child must be 5 years of age by September 1st to enter Kindergarten. A child must be 6 years of age by September 1st to enter 1st grade.
The most important qualification for acceptance into the school is the Administration's assessment that the applicant will enjoy a successful school experience. This assessment is made in consultation with the family, as well as through examination of the student's past academic and conduct records. The aforementioned records must be provided by parents prior to admission. If a child has been diagnosed with a learning difference, it is the parent's responsibility to notify the administration and submit documentation to the Learning Lab (preferably before assessment). All new students are conditionally admitted for the first nine weeks.
According to Diocesan Policy #5000, attending a Catholic school is a privilege and not a right of a student. The conduct of a student or the parent of the student may cause the student to lose the privilege of attending St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School.
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School is in compliance with the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other federal statutes of non-discrimination in its employment and admission practices. It admits qualified students of any race, color, sex, national or ethnic origins to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students of the school.
