Application packets for the following school year will be accepted by the LCSS Admissions Director beginning January 1. When space is available after current LCSS students register in April, the following considerations will be taken into account for priority placement for applications received by April 15:
- Siblings of current LCSS students and alumni, and children of current LCSS employees.
- Children of registered families from the six Tippecanoe County parishes.
- Children of registered families in parishes within the Diocese of Lafayette.
- Children of registered families in parishes outside the Diocese of Lafayette.
- All other students are welcome.
Applications received after April 15 will be considered in a first come, first served order. When space is not available in a grade, new students may be asked to attend the school where openings exist in that grade or a wait list will be started.
For the current school year, transfer students may be admitted for immediate enrollment to the elementary schools at any time during the school year when space available.
Kindergarten application packets will be accepted beginning Kindergarten Registration Day, Friday, February 17, 2017, 8 am – 1 pm at both St. Lawrence and St. Mary Schools. Priority placement for kindergarten admission will be given to current LCSS families first, and then to St. Lawrence and St. Mary preschool families, through a pre-registration process. The above priority placement will then be considered for all other applications received at Kindergarten Registration. After Kindergarten Registration, applications will be admitted first come, first served.
A student entering kindergarten should be at least five years of age on or before August 1. Enrollment of students not five years old by August 1 is discouraged. Students younger than five years old on August 1 requesting admission will be evaluated by the School Principal within a month so the start of school. Admission will be approved if the student is determined to possess the readiness skills necessary to be successful in kindergarten.
