Priorities for Admittance

Priorities for Admittance in Elementary Schools as defined by the Catholic Independent Schools of the Vancouver Archdiocese (CISVA) are as follows:

      1. Children presently enrolled in the school if they and their families meet the expectations of the school.
      2. Siblings of children already in the school, whose families are practicing Catholics active in the parish.
      3. Children whose families are practicing Catholics active in the parish.
      4. Siblings of children already in the school, whose families are practicing Catholics active in other parishes.
      5. Children whose families are practicing Catholics coming into the parish, who have been attending Catholic school elsewhere.
      6. Children whose families are practicing Catholics active in other parishes.
      7. Children whose families are either not practicing Catholics or not active in their parishes.
      8. Non-Catholics. Enrollment of more than 15% non-Catholics in any grade require the approval of the Board of Directors. Once accepted into the school, non-Catholics need to meet only the criteria expected of other students to be re-admitted in subsequent years. Siblings of non-Catholics cannot be given priority over Catholics.

School Fees

Parish schools within the Archdiocese of Vancouver service the parish with which the school is affiliated. Each year the parish subsidizes the school financially to balance the school’s budget. In addition, the school requires specific annual fees. Information regarding tuition fees will be available in the application package.

Application Fee

A non-refundable application fee of $50.00 is charged for every submitted application.
