Admission Priorities

- Children of active parishioners, that is families meeting the three requirements for active membership in St. Elizabeth Parish for a period of at least two years, namely: are registered in the parish, attend mass regularly, and are tithing to the parish.
- Children of families new to St. Elizabeth parish who had an active membership in their previous parish for a period of at least two years.
- Children from Catholic families who want to pay tuition because they do not want to leave their present parish, or for any other reason, with the approval of the pastor.
- Children from non-Catholic families who want to pay tuition.
- Children from Catholic families who have no history of active membership in a parish.  These children will be admitted on a tuition basis until active membership is established in St. Elizabeth parish for a period of at least one year.

NOTE: Once a family has a child in school, that family will be given priority for other siblings until the family either stops tithing or stops paying tuition.


All children of active, tithing parishioners can attend grades Kindergarten through 8th grade without paying tuition.  St. Elizabeth parishioners are asked to faithfully consider tithing 5% of their income to the parish.  All school families are required to pay applicable registration fees and adjusted tuition each year.
