3. Consideration of Applicants
While persons of all faiths are accepted into Charlottesville Catholic School each year, for junior-kindergarten through 8th grade applicants, we do give consideration to:
- Families who currently have a child or children enrolled in JK through 8th grade
- Registered Catholic parishioners
- Students previously enrolled in a Catholic school
- Date application was submitted
Current Charlottesville Catholic School junior kindergarten students are placed in the applicant pool and considered with all kindergarten applications. Applicants for kindergarten will be invited for a kindergarten screening. Selected applicants for grades 1-8 will be invited to visit and spend a day with their current grade during which time they will be given an academic screening.
4. Application Decision
Charlottesville Catholic School will begin offering enrollment contracts for new students entering junior kindergarten through eighth grade in mid-March. Families to whom a contract has been offered will have one week to accept that contract. We will then continue to offer contracts on a rolling basis as seats remain available. All families will be notified of the status of their application by mid-April.
5a. If an Enrollment Contract is offered:
It is important for applicants to know Charlottesville Catholic School is a regional Diocesan school without direct parish affiliation. We have adopted the Cost Based/Need Based tuition model. This model allows us to provide financial grants and aid. Tuition is based on the cost to educate an individual student. We do offer discounts for families with multiple students. (See Tuition and Payments page for full financial details.)
- The completed Enrollment Contract must be submitted with a $300 fee by the date specified in the letter of acceptance. If multiple contracts are offered within a family, a $300 fee is due for each contract.
- Instructions regarding how to submit a FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment will be included with offered contracts. For information on FACTS Grants and Financial Aid please refer to the Financial Grants and Aid Assessment page. For new families who apply for tuition aid after the initial deadline, consideration will also be given to their needs, based on a FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment, and a decision on what aid is available will be communicated in a timely manner.
- Having submitted a FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment, a decision will be made by Charlottesville Catholic School as to how much grant and aid can be offered. Only if Charlottesville Catholic School is not able to meet the amount of Grant and Aid for which FACTS has determined you are eligible, will you be able to withdraw your enrollment contract without obligation or penalty.
5b. If an Enrollment Contract is not offered:
We will keep your application under consideration in case seats become available before or during the next academic year. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you would like us to roll over your application for consideration for the following academic year, we ask that you notify the Admissions Coordinator.
If you have any questions regarding this process, please do not hesitate to call Jodie Chambers, Admissions Coordinator (434-964-0400, ext 307) or email firstname.lastname@example.org for clarification.
