Students are considered for admission to Christ the Teacher Catholic School according to the following criteria:

While children of all faith persuasions are considered for admission, Catholic families could receive priority admission if you meet the in-parish policy.  Priority consideration is given to those families who are members of one of the four parishes that sponsor Christ the Teacher School (Holy Family, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, St. Joseph, St. Margaret of Scotland). In order to be considered a member of the parish, a family must be a registered, active and participating (giving of time and talent) parishioner. The pastor of your parish will verify parish membership once you have spoken to or met with him. Once that criteria has been met students are considered in the following order:

    1. Siblings of students enrolled in Christ the Teacher Catholic School (Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 8 and Graduates)
    2. Students from Christ the Teacher Pre-Kindergarten and children from sponsoring parishes
    3. Catholics transferring from private or public schools
    4. All others who are in agreement with the mission, philosophy, and policies of the school.  All students participate in religion classes, liturgy, and school prayer each day.
