Our January registration for our Kindergarten and Pre-K 4 Programs is early enough to ensure that parish families of St. Charles Borromeo have a first opportunity to register their children. Please bring to registration:
1. A copy of your child’s birth certificate and baptismal certificate even if baptized at St. Charles
2. A copy of your child’s immunization record
3. The $50.00 non refundable registration fee (PreK)

Order of registration priority will follow the established admissions guidelines as listed below:
ADMISSIONS - SCP 1023
St. Charles School shall follow and promote an open enrollment policy, accepting students according to Diocesan Policy (4010) and Parish guidelines. (Before acceptance all registration requirements and deadlines must be met.)
SPC1023 - Admissions Procedures
Per Diocesan Policy 4010, all students new to St. Charles Borromeo School must be administered a placement test before beginning school. Diocesan policy allows the use of ILearn test results and various standardized and local assessments to fulfill the placement testing requirements.
Classification A: Families who are registered and actively involved at St. Charles who presently have their baptized Catholic children attending St. Charles School.
Classification B: Families who are registered and actively involved at St. Charles in order of parish registration date, who do not currently have children enrolled at St. Charles School. Parents from St. Charles parish would have priority for admittance to St. Charles depending upon their date of parish registration and their active and/or contributing support of their parish church.
Every registered family has a moral obligation to support their parish through the weekly offertory envelopes by donating to the Sunday collection as much as they can afford to cover the actual cost of educating a child. Tuition for St. Charles does not cover the full cost, the balance is subsidized by the parish of St. Charles. In addition, regular Sunday church attendance is required. Families must not only be registered in their parish, but be active members as well as participating in some of the programs of parish life.
Classification C: If room permits, students whose parents are actively involved in other parishes may be admitted after March 1st. If a family is utilizing an Indiana Choice Scholarship (voucher), the student will be enrolled on the day of the annual voucher lottery if room permits. In the event of a voucher lottery, if there are more students applying than there are available enrollment spaces, then applying students must be enrolled in the order in which they are chosen in the lottery. This is a first-come first-serve system as required by State law.
Classification D: If room permits, non-Catholic students may be admitted after March 1st. If a family is utilizing an Indiana Choice Scholarship (voucher), the student will be enrolled on the day of the annual voucher lottery if room permits. In the event of a voucher lottery, if there are more students applying than there are available enrollment spaces, then applying students must be enrolled in the order in which they are chosen in the lottery. This is a first-come first-serve system as required by State law. Character references from a minister or a school administrator may be required. If a student in this category is accepted into St. Charles, he/she may continue through graduation. Siblings, however, will be placed in Classification C.
